Mexican Candy

Anyone who has walked through the sweets shops of Mexico is likely familiar with the combination of chilis and tamarind.

Featured Spirit: Dos Hobos

Tart, spicy and sweet, these flavors are combined with smoky Dos Hobos and bitters to create a Latin-inspired riff on the Old Fashioned cocktail. Fermented and distilled from 100% blue agave, we’ve taken inspiration from our friends south of the border in creating Dos Hobos. Technically not a tequila due to geographical restrictions, we rest our Dos Hobos in used scotch casks to create a slightly smoky, reposado-style agave spirit. 


  • 2 oz Dos Hobos 
  • ¾ oz Pineapple Tamarind Syrup 
  • 1 dash Old Fashioned bitters 
  • 1 dash Orange Bitters

First, rim one side of your serving glass with a spicy salt (Tajin brand works well). In a large mixing glass, combine all ingredients and top up with ice. Stir for 30 - 45 seconds, and strain into your serving glass with a large cube. Garnish with a wedge of pineapple, or a tamarind candy.
