TIME: 15 MIN
½ oz Lemon Juice
1 ½ oz Chipotle Sour Puree from Perfect Puree or House-Made Chipotle Sour *
2 oz Cabin Still Bourbon
Sal de Gusano for garnish
* To Make House-Made Chipotle Sour Mix:
Make Chipotle Simple Syrup by bringing 1 cup Sugar, 1 cup Water, and 1 dried Chipotle Chili Pepper to a boil, stirring occasionally to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and let cool. Remove pepper when cool.
While the syrup is cooling, strain 1 cup Freshly Lemon Juice and ½ cup Fresh Lime Juice into a resealable bottle, discarding the pulp. Pour in the cooled simple syrup. Shake and use immediately or refrigerate.
Combine all ingredients in a shaker tin over ice. Shake well to combine, and strain into a lowball glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a skewered lemon wedge dusted with Sal de Gusano.
