The Rosita is a drink I first encountered in GQ Magazine, I think it was the December 1998 issue? It was in an article written by Terry Sullivan, where he was providing cautionary tale about drinking too much tequila. The Rosita didn't figure in his tale, but for whatever reason he chose to end the article with this delightful little drink. After trying it, I decided it was probably my favorite tequila cocktail, and one that rarely appeared to be listed in cocktail books of the day.

1 1/2 ounces tequila
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1/2 ounce Campari
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Garnish: Lemon twist
Stir with ice. Strain into an ice filled Old Fashioned glass.
Please remember to drink safely and responsibly.
