Tasting Notes for Nixta Licor de Elote
On the nose: ornbread, toasted corn, vanilla and caramel. On the palate: notes of sweet corn perfectly balanced with toasted notes of roasted corn, vanilla and caramel.
For cocktail lovers, Nixta provides textural silkiness and rich, wide ranging, flavor versatility—adding unique, sweet or savory components to favorite drinks or use it to create new craft cocktail recipes. Nixta can also be enjoyed neat or over ice.
The Nixta Spritz features 1.5 parts Nixta to 1 part Amaro Montenegro, .25 parts lemon juice & 4 parts seltzer. Mix the first three ingredients in a highball glass, add ice, and top with seltzer. Garnish with an orange twist.
To create Nixta, the best tender corn of the season is macerated in an exquisite corn distillate and sweetened with clarified sweet wort—both produced from ancestral cacahuazintle grown near our distillery at a height of more than 7,000 feet above sea level.
Pure cacahuazintle corn is used in two different stages of development: Cacahuazintle sweet corn is macerated and prepared to extract all its delicate flavor. And ripe, cacahuazintle kernels are nixtamalized to produce a sweet wort and alcohol. Together, these ingredients make Nixta Licor de Elote into a flavorful, versatile liqueur that is true to its origin.
