John’s signature drink, this one is always a hit and highly addictive! Drawing on John’s New Mexico heritage, mixologist Mark Barclay created this pleasantly sweet & spicy martini utilizing New Mexico Red Chile Powder.
½ ounce fresh lemon juice
2 sprigs of mint
¼ tsp New Mexico Red Chile Powder
¼ ounce Rose’s grenadine
1 ounce orange Curacao
2 ounces gin
Cinnamon (for rimming)
Combine the lemon, mint, grenadine and New Mexico Chile Powder in a mixing glass and muddle well. Strain into a shaker. Add the orange Curacao and gin, and shake hard with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass rimmed with cinnamon.
