2 oz Blanco tequila (corn-infused)
1 oz Ancho Reyes chile liqueur
1⁄2 oz Falernum
2 pn Salt
1 wdg Lime (as garnish)

Stir or shake; strain over rocks. Garnish with lime (the option to squeeze goes to the drinker) and corn kernels strung on a pick as the bartender's patience allows.


Was striving for the appeal of elotes, without necessarily reproducing those flavors entirely.
