The Departed is one of my favorite new films and is nominated for an Oscar in 2007. In honor of the movie, Tequila Tezón created The Departini. It's a stunning cocktail of Tezón's spectacular reposado tequila and Martell Cognac with the addition of citrus from Cointreau and agave nectar for a sweetner. I can gaurantee you'll thoroughly enjoy this Martini.
