We have Jason Kosmas and Dushan Zaric of famed Employees Only in New York to thank for this terrific tequila cocktail, which features some less-than-usual spirits. The combination of sweet floral notes and herbaceous fennel with the underlying richness of aged agave offers layers of balanced and intriguing flavor.
This is the type of cocktail that goes beyond the basics. Perfect when you want a drink that is easy to make but also a "wow" on taste. So go ahead, wow 'em.

Put all ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice and stir for 40 revolutions. (Love that precision!) Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
Thanks to Steve the Bartender for the image!
