The Rosita

May 3, 2016

Author Notes: This cocktail is something of a vintage cocktail that was dusted off and written up first by Gary Regan in The Bartender's Bible and then in an article by Terry Sullivan. It gives tequila the Negroni treatment, which results in something interesting, elegant, and a fun alternative to a margarita.


Serves: 1


  • 1 1/2 ounces reposado tequila
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth (I recommend Dolin dry)
  • 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth (I recommend Cocchi Vermouth di Torino)
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Lemon twist, for garnish
