Calling for Cristalino

by James Stevenson

I love the combination of tequila and hibiscus, so I collaborated with El Mayor Cristalino Tequila to create this delicious cocktail. I just had to use their new cristalino tequila, which is an añejo tequila that has been filtered through ultra-fine charcoal to make it crystal clear and crisp, like a blanco, while retaining the robust character of the añejo tequila. This effect gives the El Mayor Cristalino Tequila a diverse flavor profile with distinct characteristics of oak and vanilla, which finish with herbal and citrus notes. Obviously, to keep with the Mexican theme, and to keep the cocktail balanced, I added some lime for a citrus hit and balanced everything with a homemade cinnamon syrup.

Recipe:
