Original Cocktail: La Despedida

I honestly don't know what to say about this cocktail other than it's freakin' delicious and you'll want to drink three of them. Also, here's a chance to use the rosé syrup you just made.

-La Despedida-

1.75 oz blanco tequila
.5 oz Amara amaro*
.5 oz strawberry rosé syrup
.75 oz fresh lime juice

Shake all ingredients like your life depends on it. Double strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish optional, but use a lime wheel if you really want one.

Isn't this just a Margarita? Yea, pretty much. Except better.

*Amara amaro is not widely available, so feel free to substitute your favorite orange liqueur. Be wary of the super sweet ones like Grand Marnier that tend to be a bit too heavy handed for a drink like this.
