The Dude Imbibes: A Smokey Cocktail, Man.
If you missed last week’s explanation of The Dude Imbibes – a celebration of our love for Lebowski – no worries, man, you can catch up here.
Now that the Pomeranian is back with Cynthia (who’s back from Hawaii), this one’s for the bowling conscientious objector. It’s a little spicy, a little sweet, a little smokey… and it was created by one of our favorite mixologists, Brian Floyd.
We’re big fans of Austin music legend Jimmie Dale Gilmore, who played Smokey. The bowling pacifist’s toe may or may not have slipped over the line a little, but we’ll always mark him 8 (even in a league game)… or at least name a cocktail in his honor.
- 2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
- .75 oz simple syrup
- 1 oz fresh lime juice
- Cholula hot sauce
- lime wheel, for garnish
- cayenne, for garnish
Shake lime juice, simple syrup, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka with 3 dashes of Cholula in a cocktail shaker. Serve up in a cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a floated lime wheel and a pinch of cayenne.
