Mix This: The Mexican Phoenix

April 25th, 2012 — 4:15pm

The Mexican Phoenix
- .5 oz Tanteo Cocoa Tequila
- 1 oz Bootlegger’s Black Phoenix (chocolatey coffee chipotle stout)
- .5 oz fresh squeezed lemon
- .5 oz simple syrup
- .5 oz egg white

Shake all, serve up in a coupe.
Garnish with a sprinkling of pumpkin spice.

This drink was created for The Golden Gopher by Jonathan (owner of Tanteo) & Justin Fix (Tanteo Market Manager).

We recently had a tasting of around 30 of the Tanteo cocktails one day & noticed that none of them had beer as an ingredient. We asked them if they knew it was a super popular request these days. We know how to make all of the old school beer cocktails, but wanted something new, simple and delicious. After some trial and error, they came up with the “Mexican Phoenix,” which we all loved! It’s creamy, sweet and spicy! We love it so much that it will be one of our featured drinks on Cinco!
