What’s better than one month of tequila? Two.
Mexican Penicillin ($20) is an agave-based version of the modern classic Penicillin cocktail by bartender Sam Ross. Using El Jimador Tequila, Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, ginger juice, lemon juice and agave syrup, it balances the sweet and sour with a hint of smoke. The ginger juice gives the cocktail more intensity as the palate enjoys a long finish with the kick of ginger and lingering smoke.
Prime your taste buds with the Habanero Soda ($20), a simple but super tasty mix of Ocho Blanco tequila infused with habanero and topped with soda water. It may sound as simple as a Gin & Tonic or a Vodka, Lime & Soda but it packs a lot more punch. It’s refreshing with a good kick of chilli, has no sugar and makes a good primer to the rest of the cocktails. The drink is garnished with lemon zest and a dehydrated habanero chilli.
