Tyler Dow’s Infused Tequila Old Fashioned

Infuse Herradura anejo tequila with dried and smoked chipotles and ancho chiles. Tyler also adds some Abuelita Mexican chocolate.

1 deseeded and deveined dried ancho chile
1 deseeded and deveined smoked and dried chipotle chile
About 3/4 of a block of Abuelita chocolate.
1 bottle of Herradura Anejo Tequila

Combine everything in a carafe and refrigerate for 48 hours. Check flavor; it will be spicier now than it will be when it ages a little, so it’s OK if it’s a little hot. If the flavor is appropriate, fine-strain the tequila into glass pour bottles.

Refrigerate for two or three days, it allows the flavors to mellow a little and get some very nice depth.

Prepare in an Old Fashioned glass. For further information see the video below.
