Cocktail & Other Recipes By Spirit Tequila & Mezcal Cocktails

Flying Solo

Louis Hirsch, the GM of Morels Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo in Las Vegas, created this nod to reluctant rebel pilot and all-around intergalactic heartthrob Han Solo because only a person of his confidence could find a positive use for that pink-headed stepchild of the wine world, white zinfandel.
