Recently, at Employees Only (EO) Miami Takeover of El Grito, I sipped down a cóctel piquante called Sex On The Taco Truck. EO Miami’s charming bar manager Dacha and his excellent bar team served up this new and deliciously smoky and spicy Ancho Verde cocktail created by EO New York’s principal bartender, Alejandro Ibañez.
The robust flavors found in Ibañez’ Sex On The Taco Truck resembles the strong tasty ingredients of a taco: cilantro, lime, and spice.
“Some of us compare sex to be spicy and hot just like the Ancho Reyes Verde,” he explains. “Since there’s a cocktail named ‘Sex On The Beach’, why not ‘Sex On The Taco Truck’? It’s an amazing drink for all seasons!”
Sex On the Taco Truck recipe
- 1.75 oz Ancho Reyes Verde liqueur
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- .5 oz lemongrass syrup
Shake Ancho Reyes Verde with fresh lime juice and a pinch of cilantro; pour over ice into tall glass rimmed with Chipotle salt; add splash of tonic water.
