Nixta Licor de Elote

Nixta Licor de Elote.....$28.99
Nixta Licor de Elote is a Mexican corn liqueur made from a base of tender, ancestral cacahuazintle (kaka • wha • SINT • lay) maize, grown in the high valleys and foothills of the Nevado de Toluca volcano. Nixta is produced at the Destilería y Bodega Abasolo, where we honor the Mexican culture of corn and the ancestral craft of nixtamalization—a 4,000 year old Mesoamerican cooking technique that uncovers the deepest flavors and aromas of maize.

.5 parts Nixta Licor de Elote
2 parts Abasolo El Whisky de Mexico (also in stock now)
3 dashes Angostura® Bitters
Glassware: Rocks Glass
Garnish: Lemon and Orange Twist

Add Nixta, Abasolo, and bitters to a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until cold and diluted. Zest citrus over rocks glass and add fresh ice. Strain drink into glass, roll zest into attractive curls and lay garnish atop the ice.
