Ancho Problem

Ezra Star, Drink | Boston

At Boston’s Drink, a menu-less bar that specializes in on-the-fly bartender’s choice drinks, one of the most common refrains heard at the bar is “I’d like something spicy with tequila.” Ezra Star’s go-to cocktail is this chile-spiked Ancho Problem, which gets its heat from Ancho Reyes chile liqueur and astringent blanco tequila.


Serving: 1

  • 1 ounce Ancho Reyes chile liqueur
  • 1 ounce blanco tequila
  • 1/2 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Demerara syrup

  1. Shake all ingredients with ice.
  2. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
