There are very few cocktails that can compare to The Grand — this libation is truly in a league of its own.
Avión Reserva 44 is a very limited, small-batch tequila that is complex, luscious and amazingly smooth. Far from your typical tequila mixed drink, the addition of Blandy’s Madeira and Marolo Milla liqueur help highlight the flavors of the spirit without overpowering it.
1 1/2 oz. Avión Reserva 44 Extra Añejo Tequila
1/4 oz. Blandy’s Madeira 5 Year Old Blended
1/4 oz. Marolo Milla Grappa and Chamomile Liqueur
Dress the Drink gold-coated pineapple hibiscus for garnish
