This is how we do it: the Mahia Marg

Everyone loves a margarita. But sometimes the remix is even better than the original. And that's the case with this delightful riff on the Cinco de Mayo mainstay featuring Nahmias Mahia Fig Spirit.  

Ingredients

1.5 oz Mahia Fig Spirit
.5 oz Tequila Reposado
1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
3/4 oz Meyer lemon oleo saccharum (see recipe below)
fresh cilantro


Method

Combine lemon juice and cilantro in a shaker. Muddle gently.  Add all other ingredients and ice. Shake hard to combine, dilute, and chill. Double strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with cilantro.

To make Meyer Lemon Oleo Saccharum: Peel Meyer lemons, ensuring as little pith as possible.  Combine with equal parts (by weight) white sugar and muddle gently. Cover in refrigerator 2-3 days until syrup forms. Strain syrup and keep refrigerated.

Spice up your Old Fashioned with Ancho Reyes

Sophisticated looking cocktail in an old-fashioned glass that has a geometric pattern on it. One large format ice cube and an orange peel on a cocktail pick artfully placed on top. A scattering of real dried ancho chiles in the background on the table.

This Cinco de Mayo, you might consider forgoing a typical margarita. Instead, punch things up with a tequila-based old-fashioned. This version packs some spicy heat thanks to the ever-lovely, ever-delicious Ancho Chile Reyes Poblano Liqueur.


Ingredients

1 oz Reposado Tequila
1 oz Ancho Chile Reyes
.25 oz rich simple syrup
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 dashes Angostura Orange Bitters
Orange peel
Lemon peel (optional)

Method

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir for 30 seconds to chill. Strain into a double old-fashioned glass over (ideally) a large format ice cube. Garnish with orange peel (and lemon, if using) by first expressing oils into the glass, then rubbing the rim with the peels.
