Picadura de abeja is Spanish for bee sting. The combination of anise and mint shaken with the tequila makes this a pleasant, layered drink. The sting comes later. Bzzzzzzzz!
1 1/2 ounces tequila
1 teaspoon Pastis
1 teaspoon white creme de menthe
Combine the ingredients in mixing glass with several ice cubes. Stir evenly for 15 to 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
Tasting notes: Complex and tasty, particularly well-suited before or after a meal.
Tomorrow: Ah, France
