golden monarch

1 1/2 oz Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz Domaine de Canton
1/2 oz BG Reynolds Passion Fruit Syrup
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1 dash St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram (~1/4 oz)

Shake with ice and pour into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and add straws.
The other drink bartender Sahil Mehta made for me at Estragon was the Golden Monarch. The drink began with a lime and allspice aroma that came across as almost cologne-like. The sip was a combination of lime and passion fruit that led into a swallow of tequila, allspice, and ginger. While the ginger notes were subtle at first, the flavor did build over successive sips.
