Añejo tequila, Orange liqueur, Cynar, Lime juice, Orange bitters
Shake, strain, straight up, cocktail glass half-rimmed with salt. Or I actually prefer Margaritas on the rocks.
A grown-up Margarita. Lingeringly bitter and complex, with peppery flavors from the tequila. Less tequila-forward than a well-made authentic Margarita.

A little bitter, a little spicy. I'll try a bit less orange next time. I used Don Julio Anejo.

Tried this as above and liked it. Creole Shrubb works really well with the tequila and Cynar. But on my second try I made a small modification using Bittermans Xocolatl mole bitters in place of the Angostura orange. For me that made it even better!
