"Reposado tequila has been aged in oak barrels for two months or up to a year, giving it a far smoother, subtler flavor."

1 ounce spaghetti squash cordial (recipe below)

1 ounce Reposado tequila

1 ounce Drambuie liqueur

½ ounce dry sherry

2 dashes chocolate bitters

2 dashes angostura bitters

cinnamon stick


Spaghetti Squash Cordial:

1 ½ cups squash purée

1 cup granulated sugar

1 sprig rosemary

1 cup vodka

Combine all the ingredients, except the cinnamon stick, into a cocktail mixer and stir until the concoction attains a consistent cloudiness. Strain into a chilled coupe glass, and garnish with the cinnamon stick.

For the Spaghetti Squash Cordial: Add into a saucepan and stir slowly over medium heat until it reaches a rolling simmer. Remove and let cool. Strain the concoction through cheesecloth into a bowl and stir in vodka. This mixture remains good for a week if refrigerated in an airtight container.
