A Sonoran Desert celebrity, the Greater Roadrunner, is fast and spunky, known in cowboy fables for picking fights with rattlesnakes (and winning). That’s why this simple tequila drink is the perfect homage to the great state of Arizona. Our Master Mixologist, Kailee Asher, created this tequila and honey cocktail along with our friends, the Arizona-based AZ Bitters Lab. The Greater Roadrunner cocktail starts with Azuñia Reposado organic tequila, and layers bright citrus notes of Orange Curacao and fresh lemon with a little smoke of mesquite honey syrup. It’s finished with the climate-controlled AZ Sunshine Bitters. No sunscreen required.
This smoky, honey-colored concoction, garnished with a dehydrated orange wheel, perfectly captures the essence of the state. Read more about the Greater Roadrunner cocktail and the desert state it hails from in our blog post.
