• Smoky Mezcal Margarita

    Keeping in line with the spirit at disposal, here is the Cocktail with Mezcal.

    Mezcal is made from Agave Espadin which is the most commonly used agave in mezcal.  Though Mezcal can also be produced from any species of agave from Oaxaca region. Espadin Agave generally takes about 8-12 years to mature.

    So what Blue Agave is to tequilla –  Espadin Agave is to Mezcal!

    The handprint on this bottle of Marca Negra Mezcal Espadin represents the tireless work of the master distillers.  Coming to the tasting notes & aroma profile, it has a fresh aroma of ripe fruit on the nose with spicy, citrus notes on the palate.  Must say it’s iconic smoky identity stands out which comes when the agave hearts, or pinas, are grilled over hot rocks prior to distilling – which imparts a rich smokey flavor. This is what makes this cocktail go one notch up for me


    Mezcal – 60 ml @marcanegramezcal
    Triple Sec – 30 ml
    Fresh Lime Juice – 30 ml
    Honey – 10 ml

    This was an  exhilarating evening.
    I simply enjoyed making this one.
    Spontaneous or rather trail and error are key to some of the wonderful  mixes in the world of mixology.
    Goa’s Cashew Feni was awarded Geographical Indication registration in 2009 as a speciality alcoholic beverage from Goa, described as a colourless, clear liquid. Locals just love this spirit as it’s also known for it’s medicinal property & well for the tourists visting Goa it’s a must try drink
    Keeping Feni as my foundation drink I have my eyes set on the rest of white spirits with a blue punch of Curacao to finish.

  • Anejo Chili Margarita

    Anejo Chili Margarita

    Anejo Reserve 1800 Tequila : Made from 100%  Blue Agave, this tequila is aged for more than a year in French & American  Oak. It has a deep copper/amber colour & nice viscosity. Taste of agave & smoke. The smokiness, I felt is more of the burned pinas rather from the barrels. Pleasant Agave spiciness,  nutty & oaky, with hint of smoky vanilla. Smooth
    With Anejo tequila around, it’s time to add some spice to the cocktail & relish like never before. Not recommended for faint hearted as we blend this drink with some red hot chili powder. Though Chipotle  chili powder recommended but I substituted with another brand.

    Tequila – 45 ml @
    Orange liqueur – 25 ml
    Lime juice – 25 ml
    Sugar Syrup – 10 ml
    Chili powder – 1/2 tsp
    Salt & Chilli powder mix – to rim
    Lemon wedge – to garnish
    Preparation Method

    Rim an old fashioned glass with a mixture of chili powder & salt.Drop a sugar cube and pour 5 ml of the Anejo tequila on it and let it soak.
    Combine the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, syrup & chilli powder in a mixing glass and shake it good with a few ice cubes. Strain it in the glass over fresh ice cubes. Stir. Garnish with lemon wedge.
    Enjoy this Spicy Red Hot Margarita

    Don Alejandro Blanco Tequila with a 40% abv & falls under the classification of ‘Mixto tequila’ which requires minimum 51% agave. This one  comes with 75% Agave. With subtle vegetal elements, white pepper, floral aroma & vanilla flavour it is a good selection  for margaritas more coz of  it’s 75%Agave profile
    Jack Daniel Whiskey from Tennessee with a mashbill of 80% corn, 12% rye, 8% malt is a spirit which is filtered through sugar maple charcoal to produce a mellow slightly smoky character. At 40%abv , it’s mellow smoky character fits in right as a floater to finish the cocktail. Simply amazing 🥃

    Cointreau with 40% abv a well known liqueur to several well-known cocktails. It was originally called “Curaçao Blanco Triple Sec”. A must for classic margaritas 🥂
    Jamun is a berry type fruit from tropical evergreen tree which comes with a taste profile that is a combination of sweet, mildly sour and astringent flavour. It goes great with salt. Being a seasonal fruit, I thought to give it a try in my drink. With few slits, the fruit went in the drink leaving it’s sweet & sour flavour to the drink Check out pic 4 of the image slide

    Margarita is often hailed as the quintessential “Mexican” cocktail.
    Carlos “Danny” Herrera, owner of Tijuana restaurant Rancho La Gloria, claims he invented the drink in 1938. .
    Dallas socialite Margarita Sames insisted that she concocted the drink for a group of her friends while vacationing in Acapulco in 1948.
    Story also goes that in 1941, bartender Don Carlos Orozco was tending bar in Ensenada, Mexico. While, he was futzing around making cocktails, Margarita Henkel, daughter of a German ambassador, walked into his bar. He allowed her to taste his experiment and coined the drink in her honor.
    Danny Negrete is also named as inventor of the drink. Apparently, the cocktail was a wedding gift for his sister-in-law, yep another Margarita, bestowed upon her at the Garci Crespo Hotel. Interestingly enough, Negrete worked at Agua Cliente Race Track, where starlet Margarita Cansino (you might know her as Rita Hayworth) would often perform.
    However the margarita may not be named after a beautiful woman at all, but instead may just be a variation of another cocktail that was popular during Prohibition: the Daisy. In fact, margarita means “daisy” in Spanish. The only difference between the Daisy and the margarita is that the former was made with brandy and the latter with tequila.
