Imbibing Mr. Boston: Bravo Cocktail

IMG_7747This lovely cocktail seems to have first appeared on the scene a few years ago at Tristan Simon’s sadly defunct Alma Restaurant in Dallas, TX.  An homage to the old-fashioned, this Mexican version works really well with an anejo tequila.  The grapefruit twist really shines here, as it adds a bitter citrus edge to the whole affair.  The addition of orange bitters also takes the place of a traditional orange wheel without overwhelming either the glass or the overall flavor profile of the delicate agave nuances.  Salud!

Bravo (Anejo Bravo)
2oz anejo tequila
0.25oz agave nectar
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 dash orange bitters
Garnish: grapefruit twist

Stir with ice and strain into chilled old-fashioned glass.  Add grapefruit twist.
