El Tesoro de Don Felipe is a traditionally crafted tequila made by master distiller Carlos Camarena and his team of tequila artisans. It’s rich and agave-forward, with flavors made possible by the use of 100 percent estate-grown agave from the highlands of Jalisco. It shines in any presentation: neat, over a large cube of ice with lime and cucumber, and especially in beautiful cocktails from some of the world’s greatest mixologists. This is El Tesoro: the art of tequila.

Santa Rosa

  • 1 ½ parts El Tesoro Blanco
  • ¾ parts fresh lime juice
  • ¾ parts Aperol
  • ½ part peach liqueu (we recommend Combier or Giffard Crème de Pêche de Vigne)
  • lime wheel and edible flower (we recommend a white snap pea flower)

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with lime wheel and flower.
