principe eduardo

2 oz El Tesoro Reposado Tequila
3/4 oz Lillet Blanc
1/4 oz Drambuie
1 dash Angostura Bitters
1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Twist a lemon peel over the top.

For my second drink, the Batavia Arrack made me want tequila, and tequila is a spirit that I do not frequently crave. Knowing that I could trust Misty on this one, she went for a tequila variation of a Prince Edward which is a Scotch cocktail. She once made me something very similar with Dubonnet instead of Lillet back in the spring. In this drink, the citrus notes from the Lillet, orange bitters, and lemon twist were pleasant highlights over the healthy swig of tequila.
