ANCHOS DE LOS MUERTOS

"Anchos de Los Muertos" is next in the country themed cocktail line. I wanted to combine a range of ingredients that come from Mexico. This blended drink has some similarities to a Piña Colada, but with a number of additional flavors packed in. One in particular is the spicy ancho chile liqueur Ancho Reyes.

-2 oz dark rum (George Bowman)

-2 oz chile liqueur (Ancho Reyes)

Papaya skin

Carve your garnish in the papaya skin. Add all of the drink ingredients to a blender. Blend to the desired texture. Pour into your glass and garnish.
