The Agan


The Pairing

Sapphire’s Flight, by K.S. Villoso

The Reasoning

The Agan is the source of magic in Villoso’s world. People fight and die for it, people are willing to murder innocent children for it – it’s all a bit grim! Given that this is the case, I figured this needed to be a cocktail that is (pardon my Kagtar) strong as shit. It also needed some flavors that I think would work in this world, and I think we have hit a nice balance of tart and sweet. Much like Sapphire herself!

The Cocktail

You will need:

  • Channel/paring knife
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Ice cubes
  • Martini glass
  • 2 oz coconut rum
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 1 lime
  • superfine/baker’s sugar

Use the channel/paring knife to cut a long twist of peel from the lime. Set to one side.

Cut a wedge from the lime and use it to coat the rim of the martini glass. Put sugar in a small bowl and use it to rim the glass – tap a couple of times to shake off any excess sugar.

Add 5-6 ice cubes to the cocktail shaker. Add rum, tequila and 1 oz of juice from the lime. Shake vigorously and strain into the rimmed martini glass. Garnish with lime twist.
