On an almost unbearably hot day on the Riviera Maya, I came across the Refresco, a tequila based cocktail at Banyan Tree Mayakoba’s Sands restaurant, where the infinity pool joins with the turquoise blue Caribbean water to meet the horizon. As it’s name would lead you to believe, the cocktail is indeed refreshing. Here’s what you need to put in your glass:
· 1.5 oz of Herradura Tequila Reposado
· 10 drops bitters
· 1 dash of lime juice
· 1 oz simple syrup
· Sparkling water
· Slice of orange (garnish)
