I love it when a recipe takes interesting ingredients that you wouldn't normally put together and turns them into something fabulous. Case in point: this cocktail! It combines tequila with white wine and ginger liqueur. The drink is incredibly balanced, surprisingly refreshing, and downright delicious. If you don't have agave nectar, substitute simple syrup. Ready for the recipe? Seriously, you've got to try this libation — it's so good I begged the bartender for the recipe so I could share it with you! He wrote it on a napkin. The photo and method after the break.
