Mexican Gentleman | Cocktail Party

Mexican Gentleman

Tequila seems to always pair well with red fruits and raisin flavors, so this clever cobbler riff from Sean Kenyon at William & Graham in Denver ticks all of our boxes.

Blackberries and raspberries can be tricky to use in a drink without getting seeds in your teeth. For this drink, you should double-strain – pour from your shaker’s strainer through a fine mesh sieve.

The Mexican Gentleman is flexible in terms of the tequila, mezcal, and sherries you select. Kenyon uses Hidalgo-La Gitana manzanilla sherry and Lustau Pedro Ximenez sherry, along with 7 Leguas reposado tequila and Del Maguey Vida mezcal. We’ve made this drink many times with whatever appropriate spirits we have on hand, and it turns out fantastic every time.

Ingredients

Instructions

Lightly muddle the fruits in a shaker. Add all remaining ingredients and ice and shake vigorously. Strain half into a tall glass filled with crushed ice and stir. Add more crushed ice and the remaining mix and stir again. Garnish with berries, an orange wheel, and a sprig of mint.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
