Wow the one you’re with by shaking up this tasty number, courtesy of Blanco Colima, Mexico City, featuring the fabulous Volcan De Mi Tierra Tequila … Cheers!
Fresh red fruits (suggest: 2 blueberries, 2 blackberries, 2 raspberries and ½ strawberry)
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
1.5oz Volcan Cristalino
½ oz Cinzano Rosso
Gently muddle half the red fruit with fresh basil in a cocktail shaker until it forms a rough paste. Add the next four ingredients and shake. Pour into brandy glass over ice. Garnish with basil sprig, remaining fruit and voilà!
Volcan De Mi Tierra is Moët Hennessy’s first tequila and a joint venture with Mexico’s Gallardo family, whose presence, recognition and resources in the region have proven instrumental in crafting the perfect spirit. The two expressions –Blanco and Cristalino – represent a new era of tequila and a celebration of its provenance. Stay tuned for our Summer issue uploading this June, for a behind-the-scenes look inside the Volcan De Mi Tierra distillery at the foot of the Tequila Volcano in the Tequila Valley, Mexico.
