Enemy Lines

from Death & Co

  • 1.5 ounces Linie Aquavit
  • .75 ounce El Tesoro Reposado Tequila
  • 1 teaspoon Rich Cane Sugar Syrup
  • 4 dashes House Peychaud's Bitters
  • 1 dash Bitter Truth Aromatic Bitters
  • Lemon Peel

Stir all the ingredients (except the lemon twist) over ice, then strain into a rocks glass. Squeeze the lemon twist over the drink and discard. No garnish.

JILLIAN VOSE, 2011 Splitting aquavit and tequila is weird, but it works. You end up with a rich drink without using a lot of sugar.—JV
