tiki rita

2 oz Patron Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz Patron Citronge Orange Liqueur
1/2 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup
1/4 oz Allspice Dram

Shake with ice, strain into a Tiki mug with crushed ice, and garnish with a lime wheel studded with 3 cloves, freshly grated nutmeg, and a Hawaiian sea salt rim.
For the Patron-sponsored dinner at Tiki by the Sea, we were served the Tiki Rita crafted by Mindy Kucan while at Hale Pele in Portland, Oregon. The drink was her entry into the 2017 Margarita of the Year competition, and the recipe itself reminded me of her Winter Daiquiri. With the Don's Spices #2 and grapefruit juice, the Margarita was elevated with vanilla and clove notes and extra citrus complexity into a delightful tropical creation.
