I'm not normally a fan of infused spirits, nor the current trend of flavored spirits.
I am a purest and I prefer my spirits to be unadulterated, pristine, and with the
essences that they were created with. Don’t get me wrong, I do love cocktails,
but I also love craft spirits neat – letting the raw aromas come through and
having the ability to taste the nuances of the distillation and aging process.
Having said that I was surprised I enjoyed the Hornitos Lime Shot as much as I did.
It's cool, clean, minty, and yes, limey, and way too easy to drink.
It's certainly drinkable on its own (though it becomes potent after a while)
but the Hornitos Lime Shot really succeeds as a mixer.
Using blue agave, lime and salt (as if this is an all encompassing lime shooter),
it’s effective because, in spite of being a prefigured beverage,
it actually tastes balanced! Have it on its own or have it handy for the
holidays to mix your cocktails, either way it will bring a little
uniqueness to your palate. HORNITOS
