“This cocktail was named after the late movie star Steve McQueen who was a notorious bad boy. Steve loved good tequila and would very likely have enjoyed this cocktail,” Brian Van Flandern.
30 ml (1 oz) Palo Cortado, Almacenista, Vides Emilio Lustau sherry
15 ml (.5 oz) Bénédictine
2 dashes of mole (chocolate) bitters
1 cherry, as garnish
Place all ingredients into a mixing glass, add large ice, stir thoroughly, taste for balance, slowly single strain into glass, garnish and serve.
gaz sez: Cor, blimey! This is a brill drink, indeed, and although the tequila is star of the show, she gets thoroughly upstaged by the sherry, and the Bénédictine steals a scene or two, too. You gone and dud it again, Brian!
