Main Spirit Tequila - Reposado
Difficulty Medium
Technique Shaken

Inspired by one of history’s greatest explorers – Columbus. Our shared passion for adventure, change and discovery and our personal experience of Mexico and Italy led me to fuse these ingredients while painstakingly and sustainably extracting their true feelings and flavours to perfection – Niccolo’ Maffezzoni – The Trader Bar – Darwin


  • 1.5 oz. 45ml Reposado Tequila
  • 0.5 oz. 15ml Honey (Cherry Tomato & Thyme infused)
  • 0.67 oz. 20ml Lime Juice
  • 0.33 oz. 10ml Cherry Tomato Juice (Roasted)
Display: oz. ml.


Shake all the ingredients with ice and double strain into an Old-Fashioned glass.

*Roasted cherry tomato juice:
Heat a splash of olive oil in a large pan, add 500g of cherry tomatoes and some salt, black pepper and 8 thyme sprigs. Allow the tomatoes to roast for 7 minutes. Squeeze the tomatoes, strain twice and you’re done.

* Honey infused with roasted cherry tomato and thyme
Boil 700 ml of honey with the remaining part of the squeezed roasted cherry tomatoes for 7 minutes while stirring.
Leave to infuse for another 15 minutes and triple strain while still hot. Leave to cool before using. Your honey is ready!
