Pierre Rodriguez

Tequila, Suze, Royal Combier, Grapefruit juice
1 oz Tequila, Espolon Reposado
12 oz Suze
12 oz Orange liqueur, Royal Combier
1 oz Grapefruit juice
1 twst Grapefruit peel
Add all the liquid to an ice-filled glass and stir for at least 1 minute to release the flavors. Strain into a coupe and garnish with the peel.
This one came to me as I was experimenting with Margarita variations. To me, grapefruit juice and tequila are a match the Imbibing gods meant to be. The addition of the Suze brings out the woodsiness to a heavenly level.

This is delicious for summer.

This is delicious for summer. Used Pierre Ferrand dry curacao. My wife wasn't planning on having a cocktail, but took one sip and then claimed the entire drink.

I reconstructed this using El

I reconstructed this using El Buho mezcal and the level of 'woodsiness' went to another level. So, I went again without the Suze and upped the curucao to replace it and it was fantastic!
