The Ruby Cigar Cocktail

By Nick Roberts From Moveable Feast Season 2, Ep.11
Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields 1 cocktail

Nick Roberts, Chef Williamson’s husband and co-chef at the couple’s L.A. restaurants, uses both tequila and mezcal in this colorful cocktail with a kick. While tequila is made from the blue agave plant, mezcal can be made from any number of agave varieties, and often has a smokier flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 fl. oz. (2 Tbs.) white tequila
  • 1/2 fl. oz. (1 Tbs.) mezcal
  • 1/2 fl. oz. (1 Tbs.) cranberry liqueur
  • Dash of aromatic bitters
  • 1 whole star anise, for garnish

Preparation

  • Combine the tequila, mezcal, cranberry liqueur, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over a single large square ice cube, filling the glass half to three-quarters full. Garnish with star anise.
