Sangre Mexicana - Mezcal Cocktail

Head Mixologist at Studio Bar, Michal Golecki, shares his recipe for the exclusive ‘Sangre Mexicana’ Mezcal cocktail available at K West Hotel & Spa until 31 August 2017.

The ‘Sangre Mexicana’ is a classic Bloody Mary with a Mexican twist. The cocktail is mixed with La Penca Mezcal instead of vodka, and with chipotle instead of hot sauce. ‘La Penca’ Mezcal, made from 100% Agave, is aged in 220-litre American White Oak barrels for approximately two to six months.

Ingredients

  • 50ml Mezcal reposado ‘La Penca’
  • 40ml Smoky tomato juice
  • 12.5ml Orange juice
  • 10ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 10ml Olive juice
  • Dash of chipotle sauce
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Wedge of lime
  • Optional: Lime and celery salt

Method

Step 1: Add a handful of ice cubes into the glass you will use for stirring.
Step 2: Add the Mezcal, olive juice, Worcestershire sauce, orange juice, salt & pepper, chipotle sauce and tomato juice to the glass. Stir thoroughly so all ingredients are mixed together.
Step 3: Rim an Old Fashioned glass with some lime and celery salt. Put some ice cubes into the glass.
Step 4: Pour the mixture over the ice and fix the wedge of lime onto the rim of the glass to garnish. ¡Salud!
