The tequila reposado provides a smooth, oaky base with a hint of vanilla, which is complemented by the sharp citrus of lime, while the grenadine adds a rich, fruity sweetness to the drink. A few dashes of Angostura bitters bring a complex layer of spiciness and an aromatic depth that balances the sweetness. This lively concoction is traditionally served in a highball glass, making it a visually appealing and palate-pleasing choice for those looking to enjoy a classic Mexican-inspired libation.
