This is a really simple cocktail that concentrates on the distinctive characteristics of Ocho Reposado tequila. I didn’t want to add too many other ingredients that might hide its unique flavour but, at the same time, I wanted to create a cocktail rather than a simple mixed drink. Fresh lime juice is the natural companion to tequila and a central flavour in Mexican culture, but the drink isn’t too sharp or sour, as the ginger beer balances out these flavours.
