This cocktail provides a Mexican twist on the French classic by using the traditional crémant wine and aloe vera liqueur. The aloe plant is very similar to the agave, but it is actually a lily. The addition of muskmelon, cucumber, lemon peel and spearmint to the eau-de-vie distillate in the Chareau liqueur balances the herbal, floral character of the El Tesoro™ Blanco, making for a truly refreshing Collins.
