This is our Burque version of a Manhattan, made with Tequila instead of Bourbon or Rye.
The ManBurque is delicious with any great tequila, blanco/plata or reposado. We usually make ours with our favorite Cazul Blanco, but for a fully local NM experience, it is also great with Troubled Minds Agave Reposado, as pictured.
For most tequila cocktails, we like to "salt the shot" by measuring with a Himalayan pink salt shot glass. This perfectly and delicately salts the tequila in a really lovely way.
2 oz Tequila
1 oz Aristology Red Vermouth
2-3 dashes Angustura Bitters
Measure the tequila in a salt shot glass (see above.) Combine ingredients and serve on the rocks or combine in a shaker with ice, shake, & strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a brandied cherry.
