Andy’s Sotol #2

by on 03/02/12 at 4:27 pm

The Strawberry creation from Andy Borbely was only the beginning- his best was yet to come.

This one is sure to be an award winner:

Set up two rocks glasses on the bar

Add ice to one glass as well as ½ oz Pernod

In the second glass, add ½ teaspoon sugar

¼ oz BitterCube Bolivar Bitters

1 dash Peychauds bitters

1 ½ oz Sotol

Dump ice and Pernod mixture, leaving a few drops of Pernod in the glass

Transfer contents of the Sotol glass back and forth several times until sugar has dissolved

Garnish with a thick-cut slice of lemon peel

Beyond belief!

Here are And’y closing remarks on these two new cocktails:

These cocktails represent only the beginning of the potential cocktail portfolio that can be built around sotol.  In particular, these recipes were designed so that amateur bartenders with the proper ingredients can execute them easily at home.  No special techniques or equipment is necessary to put together the cocktails above.

I hope this starts you on your journey toward a world of sotol cocktails.

Sincerely,

Andy
