The Wild East

  , ,

November 16, 2016

Inspired by the artists at Vulpes Bastille, the Wild East is a celebration of the East Crossroads. Bold, unconventional, wild, but beautiful and surprisingly approachable.

Don't let the jalapeño scare you off - the heat is balanced nicely by the citrus.


2 oz. Lifted Spirits Vodka

3/4 oz. Lime Juice

1/2 oz. Rich Syrup

1/4 oz. Jalapeño Shrub

1 Jalapeño Slice (for garnish)

Cherrywood Chips


1Prep the jalapeño shrub. (Needs to be done at least 24 hours in advance.)

2Prep the Rich Syrup. (Needs to be enough in advance to allow it to cool.)

3Smoke your glass by lighting the cherry wood chips with a small torch and covering the flame with your glass. It's easier than it sounds!

4Add all the liquid ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice....then shake.

5Lift your glass off the wood chips and add fresh ice before straining your cocktail into the smoked glass.

6Garnish with a torched jalapeño slice.

On a scale of 1 to 5 this drink is at least a 10 :).

My life has changed since trying this. Chuck Norris now looks under his bed making sure I’m not there at night. I punched a lion right in the mouth and knocked him out cold. My wife says I’m better in bed etc!

I can’t thanks you guys enough for changing my life!
