We bet this would be delicious with grapefruit or blood orange, too.

The Hank

“As much as I love fancy ingredients, infusions, syrups, bitters, etc., sometimes it is best to get back to basics. For the no-nonsense drinker, there is The Hank. Named after my father, who has one every night, this was the first cocktail recipe I ever learned. A decent reposado tequila, fresh squeezed lime and orange juice, and just the right proportions will make this drink delicious. A great option for those no sugar added types, or after a long night of mixing complicated drinks.”

Makes 1

2 ounces reposado tequila

1¼ ounce lime juice

¾ ounces orange juice

lime twist, to garnish

1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.

2. Shake and strain into an ice-filled tumbler.

3. Garnish with a twist of lime.
