COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK – The Mexican Butterfly

Tequila, or “vodka with soul” as certain connoisseurs and stylish individuals now refer to it.   This seriously under-appreciated Mexican icon is experiencing a rebirth as the ultra-premium spirit of choice.

With a history like Casa Herradura’s, you know they’re getting it right. 100% naturally fermented agave. 100% hacienda made since 1870, it’s no wonder they’ve made it into our cocktail of the week.

50ml Herradura Plata

25ml Lime Juice

15ml Elderflower Cordial

2tsp Agave Nectar

6 Mint Leaves
