It is no secret that I love tequila.
But not just any tequila… Ambhar.
I was first introduced to Ambhar Plata tequila by Francisco, my favorite bartender ever at La Cava de Tequila in EPCOT. It has a definite zing but is so smooth; combine that with a chaser of Sangrita and you have a match made in tequila heaven.
Once I was finally able to get my hands on a coveted bottle of Ambhar, I knew I had to put it to good use. As of now, you are only able to find Ambhar in La Cava and some other places in Florida — but a little birdie told me they may venture to Tampa soon!
My first thought was creating a margarita with apple cider, but once it was created & passed a taste test, I realized it was not a margarita…but a cocktail. Thanks to my clever dad for coming up with the name for my creation: Tequila CIDOR. The ‘tequila’ part is obvious, but CIDOR is a combination of Cider AND Orange. Since I added the zest of an orange liquor, it seemed appropriate. Find the full recipe below.
