Warren Bobrow’s Cocktail Hour: The Sand Dollar Cocktail

Tequila and….

Tequila has a rough and ready reputation. Not all Tequila is meant to be shot with lime and salt, nor does all Tequila deserve the dishonor to be covered up in sticky sweet Triple Sec, Rose’s lime juice/sugar syrup and ice. Tequila is interesting enough for a gimlet and certainly it is interesting enough in a citrus based, Martini type drink.

The Sand Dollar (For a few dollars more) cocktail is a very sophisticated Tequila drink that goes down even better with freshly squeezed juices. In fact I never (EVER) use bottled juice and you shouldn’t either. Bottled fruit juice is only for breakfast, if then!

Fresh juices were invented for cocktails… And breakfast!

I use Milagro Silver Tequila for most of my Tequila based drinks because of its superb mixability. It’s got flavor wrapped through each savory/spicy sip. I also use the brilliant handcrafted Bitter End Thai Bitters in this cocktail. I suggest using the Thai Bitters, woven with lemongrass, galangal and spices. These truly unique bitters are worth seeking out and you can find them here. The drink comes together with a bit of sweet Vermouth. I prefer the Carpano Antica. It’s worth seeking out.

The Silver Dollar Cocktail (only For a few dollars more!)

Makes one very strong cocktail. Or two weak ones.

3 shots of Milagro Silver Tequila

½ shot of Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth (or your choice)

¼ cup total- freshly squeezed lime, grapefruit and lemon juices (essential!)

1 medicine dropper of Bitter End Thai Bitters

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled ½ with ice

Shake and strain into a chilled Martini glass with one large round ice cube- garnish w/a home cured cherry and a sprig of slapped spearmint.

    Thanks for the tequila tip – it’s actually quite hard to find recommendations for flavorful silver tequilas. It’s either expensive aged ‘sipping tequilas’, or expensive ‘smooth’ (ie less flavor) silver tequilas. Milagro is noted.

    The Milagro is very affordable and delicious.  It speaks clearly of the passion and the art of distillation.  This is not vodka, nor gin, the Milagro Silver is elegant and very mixable!
