Sweet Sumo mandarin oranges and earthy tequila make for a truly unique flavor combination. To be honest this drink came to be with a particular mission in mind. Make Sauce like orange in cocktails. Be sure to buy a few extras, as these oranges are delicious!
Equipment: shaker, strainer, muddler, coupe or martini glass
2 deseeded slices of jalapeno, plus one more for garnish
½ tsp demerara sugar
2 dashes Scrappy’s orange bitters
1 oz fresh Sumo mandarin orange juice
2 oz silver tequila (I prefer Milagro)
¼ oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
Gently muddle 2 jalapeno slices with demerara and orange bitters in shaker tin. Add orange juice, tequila and Luxardo and fill with ice. Shake for 15-20 seconds and strain into coupe or martini glass. Garnish with deseeded jalapeno slice. Cheers!
