[pancho villa]

2 oz Tequila Ocho Plata
1/2 oz Lustau Oloroso Sherry
1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Sundays ago, we ventured over to the Fenway area to visit bartender John Mayer at his new home, Citizen Public House. For a first drink, John suggested a tequila number that he had been working on; with sherry in the mix, I was certainly game. Once prepared, the drink began with a robust agave aroma that was punctuated by floral notes. A grape and lime sip led into a nutty tequila swallow with a Maraschino finish. Indeed, it was no surprise that the oloroso sherry worked rather well with the Maraschino liqueur here.
