Our friend brought a new liqueur into our lives this year from her recent visit to Mexico. It is a Mayan honey and anise liqueur called Xtabentun. We immediately began researching cocktail ideas and found a pretty delicious one in the Mayan Margarita. We made a few tweaks and think this version is perfectly sweet, strong, and sour.
1 ½ ounces tequila blanco
½ ounce xtabentun (honey liqueur)
¼ ounce cointreau
½ ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
Add all ingredients to a shaker over ice, shake until chilled, pour over ice in a rocks glass.
