"I wanted to create a tequila-based Espresso Martini since I believe that these two ingredients waltz together elegantly.  The lemon-zest aroma that I added as an aromatic garnish brings a third dimension into play that I believe brings everything together in a tightly-knit cocktail."


Recipe:

The Black Gauntlet

1.5 oz Blue Nectar Silver Tequila

2.0 oz Gaz Regan's Salted Espresso Martini Syrup

1.0 lemon twist as an aromatic garnish

Pour the tequila and the Martini Mixer into an ice-filled mixing glass and stir for 20 to 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupette, and add the oils from the lemon twist over the top of the drink, then discard the twist.
