Ashes To Ashes Cocktail Recipe

Created by H. Joseph Ehrmann Elixir, San Francisco
According to Ehrmann, this cocktail honors the multicultural melding of Aztec and Spanish traditions from which Dia de los Muertos was born. Traditional Mexican ingredients such as agave are paired with Spanish ingredients such as Pedro Ximenez Sherry, and finished by sprinkled cinnamon—metaphorical ashes, if you will.
