Cherry Sling Margarita

For the first Mixology Monday of 2009, we were challenged to use an ingredient that was new. At least new to us. Wondering what that could be I landed on a bottle of Agavero Licor De Tequila. A-64 proof tequila liqueur made from a blend of añejo and repasado tequilas, mellowed with essence of damiana flower.
