Sangre de Agave

This cocktail was found on my favorite imbibers blog – The Cocktail Chronicles some weeks ago. Paul`s description of this cocktail is so intriguing and compositions seems me very interesting. Unusual combination of heavy rum
and reposado tequila with creme de cassis and lime (Paul`s limes were lousy… hm-m-m-m… my favorite words for describing bad quality ungredients) promise interesting taste.

Sangre de Agave

45 ml reposado tequila (Sierra Reposado Gold)
15 ml dark, heavy rum (Angostura 1919)
20 ml fresh lime juice
15 ml creme de cassis
3 ml gomme syrup
Shake. Cocktail glass.

Admirable! Very rich and interesting taste. But relatively to Angostura 1919 rest ingredients are lousy :) may be except lime…

  1. try a few 100% agave tequilas and you will never buy another mixto again. just the fact u used Sierra gold tequila in this drink would have surely RUINED it.
    Paul entered this drink with Don Julio Repo on his site.
    It costs around 3 to 4 times the price of the Sierra for good reason.

  2. Bingo! :) You`re right, loz! The Sierra is bad choice – very… lousy ingredient :) But unfortunately I dont have another reposado tequila in my bar now.
