Nirvana by Omar Terriquez
As part of the Bartender Residency Program in Casa Dragones Tasting Room in San Miguel de Allende, Omar Terriquez took to the “world’s smallest tequila bar” to create the Nirvana signature craft cocktail.
Terriquez, mixologist at Dodo Cafe and Bar in Querétaro Mexico, used lemon juice to highlight the citrus notes in Casa Dragones Blanco and agave syrup to elevate the smooth essence of the tequila. Further, Terriquez added herbal tea with cinnamon for spice.
The cocktail is topped with ginger ale, adding some sweetness and effervescence. For an elegant finishing touch the cocktail is served in a Riedel tequila glass and garnished with a small purple flower.
1½ oz. herbal tea with cinnamon
½ oz. agave syrup
7/10 oz. lemon juice
1½ oz Casa Dragones Blanco
Shake vigorously. Double-strain over a chilled Riedel tequila glass. Top with ginger ale. Garnish with a small purple flower.
