Elote Cobbler

Leanne Favre, Leyenda | Brooklyn, NY

Leanne Favre describes her Elote Cobbler as “savory and indulgent,” an apt description for a drink that is spirit-forward and richly textured. A base of corn-forward bourbon is complemented by the baking spice and earthy notes of reposado tequila, paired with unsalted oat milk, orgeat and a splash of lemon juice. The signature savory element comes courtesy of a salted corn syrup that lends body to the finished drink.
