“As much as I love fancy ingredients, infusions, syrups, bitters, etc., sometimes it’s 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 juices, 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.”
2 ounces reposado tequila
1¼ ounces lime juice
¾ ounces orange juice
lime twist, to garnish
1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
