Tequila Thursday: The Yellow Jacket

If your yearly tequila intake is limited to slushy-machine margaritas or shots gulped at loud parties, you haven't even begun to experience what this spirit has to offer. So your loyal Drinks team has decided to dig up a delicious tequila cocktail recipe every Thursday for you to try.

Today's aromatic tequila cocktail comes from Speakeasy, the cocktail cookbook from Jason Kosmas and Dushan Zaric of Employees Only in New York. It's rich and honey-tinged from the combination of St-Germain elderflower liqueur and fennel-scented yellow Chartreuse. Herbal, musky, and bittersweet, it's a contemplative, well-balanced cocktail, named for the wasps that swarm around agave farms and tequila distilleries.
