1 1/2 oz Añejo Tequila (Lunazul Reposado)
1/2 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice.
Two Wednesdays ago, I spotted an intriguing recipe from Sahil Mehta on the ShakeStir site from late April called the Passiflora. I was lured in by the tropical tequila Sour recipe due to its use of Punt e Mes to give the drink some depth. Once prepared, the Passiflora met the nose with a cinnamon, agave, and tropical fruit aroma. Next, lime, passion fruit, and grape on the sip led into tequila, cinnamon, and bitter melon flavors on the swallow. Overall, the cocktail came across like a brooding Margarita.
