Jim Meehan, bartender extraordinaire and Fine Cooking contributor, made a fantastic cocktail last night featuring Jose Cuervo Platino, a handcrafted 100% blue agave silver tequila. The smooth tequila paired with lime juice, rich sherry, and fig jam was incredible!
El Señor
Serves one
2 oz. Jose Cuervo Platino
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. Dry Sac sherry
1/4 oz. Benedictine
1 tsp. St. Dalfour Royal Fig jam
Slice of fresh fig for garnish
Add everything but the fresh fig to a mixing glass and fill with ice. Shake as hard as you can for 7 to 10 seconds and then strain into a chilled coupe.  Garnish with the slice of fig.
You can find this recipe and many, many more in Stir Your Soul, the recipe book from Tales, published by Mud Puddle Books.
