Mary's Recipe: Vida Tequila Holiday Cheer

Vida Tequila Reposado is 100% Agave Tequilana Weber, aged in American white oak barrels for six months. Of course, this fact came from a press release, and of course, the press people included a recipe. Here it is:


Holiday Cheer

1 oz Vida Añejo
2 oz Kahlua
2-3 oz cream
1 oz Baileys Irish Cream
1/4 oz peppermint simple syrup

Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled and cinnamon-sugar rimmed martini glass
Garnish with chocolate shavings and a peppermint stick
Peppermint Simple Syrup:
Brew one 10 oz cup of Peppermint Tea
Combine hot tea with an equal amount of cane sugar (50-50 ratio) until all sugar is dissolved.
Cinnamon Sugar
2 parts superfine sugar, 1 part cinnamon
Another option: I like to sip the añejo like a brandy, all by itself.
