Gunner’s Libation: Campfire in Winter

For those needing a hint of summer as the winter rolls along, sipping on a Jalisco Campfire cocktail will bring a bit of smoky flavor and warmth to the soul. Served at Hooch (which is underneath Meat and Cheese), the Jalisco Campfire brings a simple mix of tequila and agave with a unique salt helper. What puts you next to the fire in your favorite camping chair is the tequila, which is infused in house with lapsan souchong black tea, which is often referred to as smoked tea. The Thai chili agave gives the drink its warmth, and the black lava salt, while it has a purpose, really ups the cool factor. The staff at Hooch joked that it was a “good gateway drink to mezcal.” Cheers to that. Be careful, though, you might want to make a stop at the store on the way home to get the goods for s’mores.
