To make the Sweet Amigo, combine in a cocktail shaker:
|The Sweet Amigo: Hornitos tequila, apricot liqueur, lime, honey, egg white|
- 1 1/2 oz Hornitos Tequila
- 1/2 oz Rothman and Winter Orchard Apricot
- 1/2 oz honey
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 3/4 oz egg white
and dry shake until it's emulsified. Then add ice and shake again to cool it before double straining into a chilled glass and sprinkling a bit of cinnamon on top.
It's a strong tequila drink with just a bit of fruit and honey. Really, it's quite balanced and could be at home on any good cocktail menu.
So for National Wife Appreciation Day tomorrow, make a few Sweet Amigos for your sweet amiga.
