1 1⁄2 oz Reposado Tequila, Siete Leguas Reposado
1 oz Gewurztraminer (Anthony Nappa Wines Spezia Gewurztraminer)
1⁄2 oz Curaçao, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
1⁄4 oz Averna
2 ds Hellfire Habanero Shrub, Bittermens

Stir, strain, coupe, garnish with a dried chile de arbol.


The wine is from the North Fork of Long Island, and is made in a dryish style from heavily botrytized grapes. The best approximation might be an Alsace VT Gewurz with a thread of saffron infused into it for a few minutes.


One of Gary Regan's 101 Best New Cocktails of 2013.

This one is godhead. Anejo tequila adds a little smoke. Must try with mezcal.
