Blood in the Water

1 oz reposado tequila

1 oz amaro montenegro

¾ oz lemon

¼ oz rich simple syrup

2 drops salt solution (4 water : 1 salt) 

3 dash angostura

2 lemon peels

  1. Combine tequila, amaro, lemon, simple syrup, salt, and 1 lemon peel into cocktail shaker tin.
  2. Shake well until shaker tin freezes in your hand, about 40-60 seconds.
  3. Strain over ice.
  4. Using a dropper or barspoon, carefully drop angostura on top of the cocktail.
  5. Hold lemon peel 4 inches above drink. Pinch, skin-side down, with pointer finger and thumb, expressing lemon oil over the cocktail.
