1 1⁄4 oz Sotol (Siempre)
1⁄2 oz Ginger liqueur, New Deal
1⁄2 oz Ancho Reyes chile liqueur
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1 Ginger (Candied, as garnish)

Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish.


This also works very well with basil eau de vie (from St. George), which gives it more of a southeast-Asian flavor profile. I garnish that variant with a kaffir lime leaf and call it "Muy Thai" (as in "very Thai").

  • Sublime. Sophisticated and smooth with a spicy kick at the finish. I used Mesh & Bone sotol and Ancho Reyes Verde (sooo much better than the red stuff).
