1 ½ oz. Blue Nectar Reposado extra blend tequila
¾ oz. Lemon juice
½ oz. Black peppercorn-honey syrup
¼ oz. Fresh apple juice
¼ oz. Sherry
2 Dashes whiskey barrel-aged bitters
Add all the ingredients into the shaker except for the apple cider and bitters. Fill the shaker with as much ice as you can and shake vigorously. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice (leave enough room for cider), top with apple cider and the two dashes of bitters. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and three black peppercorns.
