Silver Needles by Raúl Torrecilla
From behind the bar at Casa Dragones Tasting Room, Raúl Torrecilla of Corazón de Alcachofa in Guadalajara, Mexico creates a full-bodied cocktail called Silver Needles, with Casa Dragones Blanco.
Torrecilla crafted the signature cocktail especially to serve to VIP guests during his bartender residency.
Making his own shrub with chamomile and green pepper, Torrecilla compliments the beautiful green notes found in Casa Dragones Blanco, while adding egg white for a full, velvety body.
The cocktail is garnished with thyme and pink pepper for an added aromatic kick.
