The Cinder Cocktail

Phil Ward is one of America's best mixologists, and he helped me realize the great potential of my blends in cocktails. The intense aroma of my Smoked Salt N.8 spice blend is not the first thing you'd expect from a cocktail, but it echoes the smoky flavors of mezcal and aged tequila. Combined with jalapeño-infused tequila, it moves this cocktail well toward the savory category.
