This mash-up between a margarita and a whiskey sour stars ajejo, a dark aged tequilla. Top the cocktail recipe with an orange slice you've broiled or caramelized with a kitchen torch for a fab garnish.




  • Place orange slice on a sheet of foil; sprinkle with sugar. Use a kitchen torch to heat sugar until it is dark golden and charred in some spots. Let cool.

    In a cocktail shaker muddle mint. Add tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, vermouth, and egg whites. Cover; shake vigorously until pressure builds and mixture sounds less "sloshy" and looks frothy. Add ice; cover and shake vigorously until cold.

    Strain into a glass and top with blood orange soda. Float burnt orange slice on top. Makes 1 serving.
