Day Eleven... Farolito Cocktail

The cocktail of the day is an elegant and fun tequila drink that was created by Chris Milligan and which is currently being served at Secreto Lounge in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Farolito Cocktail stands out because of two key ingredients, without which it would be a sweet tequila martini, and those are fresh sage and chokecherry syrup. That last one probably has you thinking that there's some big production needed, but the method to make it is no more difficult than making simple syrup and it is a fantastic ingredient that could find more uses. The syrup paired with the fresh herb and lime juice, your favorite anejo tequila and sweet vermouth, then a touch of mole bitters is a mix that is nothing short of extraordinary.
