Big Country Kitchen Ft. Ricky Cobia - Raspberry Jam Syrup x Desert Door Oak Age Sotol Cocktail
Have you ever heard of sotol? It's an up-and-coming Mexican spirit made from a type of shrub, Dasylirion wheeleri, more commonly called desert spoon. Unlike tequila and mezcal, Sotol is crafted from agave.
How does it taste? It is typically described as being bright and grassy. It can have musky, earthy or vegetal characteristics. It’s not fruity, but instead has a pine-like quality.
Big Country Kitchen's host, Ricky Cobia, had a blast in the kitchen using Desert Door Sotol, raspberries and Big Country Organic Cane Sugar to create a DELICIOUS cocktail. He wasn't named "Austin's top 5 bartenders" for nothin'!
