Macoupin Morning

Portugal’s fortified Madeira proves a nice match for aged tequila and passionfruit in this dynamic drink.

1 1/2 oz. reposado tequila
3/4 oz. passionfruit juice
1/2 oz. Madeira (Clark uses Broadbent)
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
Dash of simple syrup (1:1)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Glass: cocktail
Garnish: flamed orange peel

Combine all ingredients and shake well with ice. Double strain into a chilled glass and garnish.
