Cocktail & Other Recipes By Spirit Tequila & Mezcal Cocktails

Death Star

For football season, we had a bartender from each NFL team's hometown provide the perfect cocktail to represent their team.

“I have been a Cowboys fan since I was about six years old,” says bartender Peter Novotny of Dallas’ Armoury D.E. “I go to games when I can, but getting a good seat at the Death Star [the nickname for the Cowboys stadium] costs a pretty penny. I usually end up tailgating and sitting in the cheap seats or party-pass seats.”

This bright blue riff on a Margarita is a nod to the Cowboys team colors. Novotny even stencils a Cowboys star onto the top of the drink.

Ingredients

Steps

  1. Rim a coupe glass with salt.

  2. Add all of the ingredients to shaker, and dry-shake (without ice) to aerate the ingredients with the egg white.

  3. Wet-shake (with ice), and fine-strain into the prepared glass.

  4. Use a star stencil and spray a blue curaçao star on top of the drink.

  5. *Cinnamon agave syrup: Simmer 6 cinnamon sticks in a 1:1 agave:water simple syrup for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Discard cinnamon sticks before using.
