1 1⁄2 oz Tequila (or Mezcal)
1⁄2 oz Aloe vera liqueur, Chareau
1⁄2 oz Dry white wine (see History)
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1⁄2 oz Simple syrup
2 ds Hellfire Habanero Shrub, Bittermens (to taste)
1 sli Cucumber (as garnish)

Shake, strain, rocks, garnish.


Cooling flavors playing off hot ones.


I've used a lot of semi-aromatic, high acid, herbaceous white wines here, to good effect. The original called for Marlborough Sauv Blanc, but I've also had good results with Loire Sauv, Franken Silvaner, and unoaked/modern styles of Verdejo.
