A spicy Italian twist on a tequila cocktail. Picture a tangy margarita with a touch of heat, orange, and bitters.


  • 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Aperol
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • 12 dashes Tabasco (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a Boston shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigoursly for 10 seconds and strain into a double old fashioned glass over fresh ice. Garnish with lime wheel.


The Tabasco adds a really nice spicy kick. If you like spicy margaritas, you will love it. Use a small drop to start with. A little goes a long way.
