1 oz Reposado Tequila (Cimarron)
1 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1 bsp Rothman & Winter Crème de Violette

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lemon wheel (lemon twist).
Two Sundays ago, I returned to the Haus Alpenz recipe collection and spotted the Adelita that called for three of their products that I already owned. The bonus was that it was created by Carrie Cole while she was at the Hawthorne in Boston which would put it around 2013; the combination also reminded me of her Bird Bath at Craigie on Main even though there is only one ingredient in overlap. La Adelita is a famous narrative song about the Mexican Revolution that became the term for a female soldiers who were vital in overturning the government. Once stirred and strained, the Adelita shared lemon, violet, and a slightly peachy bouquet to the nose. Next, white grape was accented by nectarine notes on the sip, and the swallow showcased tequila with herbal flavors blending into sharper floral ones.
