Handcrafted Classic Cocktail Recipe: The Sicilian

Enjoy making one of our Handcrafted Classic Cocktails, The Sicilian. It’s a our twist on the classic margarita but with a touch of Aperol and blood orange juice. This is a great cocktail for parties since you can make batches ahead of time and simply add the ingredients to your shaker and go! 

Serves 4
Ingredients
6 oz Herradura Silver Tequila – 100% agave tequila
2 oz Aperol
2 oz Blood orange juice
2 oz Lime juice, fresh squeezed
4 oz Simple syrup
6-8 dashes Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters
1 Orange

Instructions
Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Add ice to shaker. Shake over ice for 30 seconds, strain and pour into a glass. With a peeler, peel 4 strips off of the orange. Twist peel to release orange oils, lightly rub peel on rim of glass and place in beverage. Serve immediately and enjoy!
