Drink Name: The Nervous Fugitive

2 oz. Avion Reposado Tequila

¼ oz. orange curacao

½ oz. smoked honey syrup

2 to 3 dashes of Peychaud’s bitters

½ oz. fresh lime juice

Assemble all ingredients in shaker; add ice and shake well. Serve in double rocks glass on ice. Garnish with lime wedge.

“It tastes like the tequila, but also fruity, oaky; you get the smoked honey syrup, and the bitters lurks with the sweetness,” said Axtell. What’s behind the name? That’s a story itself—literally. Axtell said, “I took the name from a six-word story I wrote: Lucky nervous fugitive saves the day.”
