Cocktail of the Month: El Yucateco Gimlet

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


  1. Rim a coupe glass with chili salted rim.
  2. Shake and strain, up in a coupe glass. 
  3. Finish with a dash of soda water.
  4. 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!
