This month's cocktail, El Yucateco Gimlet, is a little different than other cocktails we've introduced you to. How, you ask? Well, the cocktail is based around a hot sauce! Unlike other hot sauces, El Yucateco's sauces are not overpowered by vinegar or salt, so it adds flavor to your beverage, in addition to a spicy kick. Below is the El Yucateco Gimlet from mixologist Jeremey Brown, who incorporated the popular El Yucateco Green Chili Habanero Sauce to put a fun twist on a cocktail.
Build in shaker with ice:
- 2oz Botanical Gin
- 1oz Habanero Liqueur
- 1oz lemonchello
- Rim a coupe glass with chili salted rim.
- Shake and strain, up in a coupe glass.
- Finish with a dash of soda water.
- Drop a lemon wheel in the glass and top the lemon with 2 dashes of El Yucateco Green Chili and a sprinkle of chili salt.
Drink and enjoy!
