1 12 oz Añejo tequila
34 oz Orange liqueur, Clément Créole Shrubb
34 oz Lime juice
12 oz Cynar
2 ds Orange bitters, Angostura orange
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

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

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!
