sufrimiento de simon

2 oz Eight Six Co. Tequila Cabeza
3/4 oz Plymouth Sloe Gin
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1/4 oz Galliano Ristretto
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into Collins glass filled with crushed ice. Add a straw and a paper umbrella.

After Drink, the party bus whisked us away from Fort Point, up Mass Ave, and into Central Square, Cambridge. Our destination was Brick & Mortar, and we were greeted with a small version of Sufrimiento de Simon to showcase the Eight Six Co's tequila. On the menu were a larger format of this drink as well as several other tequila cocktails including the El Ranchito with peach tea syrup and Suze gentiane liqueur which I tried.

The Sufrimiento de Simon showcased a fruity lemon aroma. The citrus continued on into the sip along with a berry note from the sloe gin. The swallow then provided tequila, coffee, and pineapple flavors with growing clove notes. Indeed, Misty utilized the agave-sloe gin combination that worked great in her Gail Collins, but overall, the libation reminded me more of the Lani Kai Sling with additional coffee notes (besides a change of base spirit).
