In preparation for the launch of A Little Taste of Mexico, I decided a semi-skinny Thermomix cocktail was in order! While travelling through Mexico City, our friend Covis introduced us to Don Juilio 70 Añejo Claro Tequila and insisted it was the best tequila money can buy… We tried it out to lunch with her and she wasnt lying – you can SIP this tequila it is that beautiful. Of course, it would be completely sacrilegious to make a cocktail out of Don Julio 70… so any tequila will do. This is a slightly sour cocktail which makes one to two decent serves, you can easily increase it based on how many people (or rounds!) you need to serve. Love Nik xx
