Tequilla Orange Spice

Photo Dec 06, 8 32 32 PMWe sat down to play some highly inappropriate Cards Against Humanity with friends, and one of my visiting competitors for this game requested I make something with Tequila for him.  Of course it’s cold and rainy, so I tropical inspired drinks didn’t immediately jump to mind.

Instead, I figured spice was the right answer, and that orange would work along with both agave and spice.

The good news is the drink was a winner.  The bad news is I lost the game of being highly inappropriate… again.


  • 2 oz Reposado Tequila (Kirkland)
  • 3/4 oz Chai Vodka
  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec (Combier)
  • 1/4 oz Cinnamon Whiskey (Sinfire)
  • 2 Dashes Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
  • Orange Peel Garnish

I put everything but the garnish in the shaker with some ice, shook it up, and then poured it into a rocks glass with a large ice-cube.  I peeled a twist of orange and wrung the citrus oil to the surface and ran it around the rim of the glass before dropping it in.
