Don Julio Blanco Part Two (Cocktails): Mexicali

As part of the recent increased interest in tequila cocktails, it’s became somewhat en vogue to take other classic cocktails and simply replace their base liquor with tequila. For example, a classic Tom Collins would become a Juan Collins.

Which, by the way, if you google Juan Collins it comes up with a man who has had some run-ins with the law.

So there’s that too.

We decided to stick with that trend and made an adjusted Manhattan with tequila.



  • 2 oz Don Julio Blanco tequila
  • .5 oz sweet vermouth
  • 2 dashes bitters

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and then strain into a chilled martini glass with a couple of the cubes from the shaker.
