Stirred, but no less shaken for the experience.
"This is a Negroni variation with tequila in place of gin, and the addition of raspberries brings acid and flavour," says Mr Moustache's Mike Tomasic. "There just isn't enough fruit in stirred cocktails." This being winter, finding good raspberries isn't always easy; if you can't get any you're happy with, squeeze a bit of orange peel over the drink instead to add some spark. It's a potent and memorable libation regardless. Mr Moustache, 69-71 Hall St, Bondi, NSW, (02) 9300 8892.
Muddle a couple of raspberries in a mixing glass, add cubed ice to half-fill it, and stir down 45ml Calle 23 Tequila Blanco, 30ml Plymouth Sloe Gin and 30ml of Campari. Double-strain into an Old-Fashioned glass over ice (the Mr Moustache team prefers block ice; if you've omitted the raspberries, now's a good time to squeeze a piece of orange peel over the drink) and serve.
