Adapted from a recipe by Giuseppe Gallo, Purple Bar at Sanderson Hotel, London, UK.

30 ml (1 oz) Tequila Ocho plata

20 ml (.66 oz) Campari

20 ml (.66 oz) Barolo Chinato wine

1 lime twist, as garnish

1 cucumber slice, as garnish

Stir over ice and strain into a rocks glass over an ice chunk. Add the garnishes.

gaz sez:  Repeat after me: Tequila Ocho is incredible; Tequila Ocho is incredible; Tequila Ocho is incredible.  And when you combine it with the incomparable Campari and the multi-dimensional Barolo Chinato (macerated with over 20 ingredients including cardamom, calisaya, gentian, and citrus peels), you just can’t go wrong.  Bravo, Giuseppe Gallo!
