Verde Poblano LiqueurMADE BY ANCHO REYES IN PUEBLA, MEXICO
We first fell in love with Ancho Reyes’ spicy spirits when we were introduced to their Chili Liqueur, but now they’ve introduced a Verde Poblano version and we’re totally giving it the green light.
When Ancho Reyes’ founders Moises Guindi and Danny Schneeweiss learned about a homemade alcoholic concoction made from distilled sun-dried chiles, they knew they had to try to make their own version with ancho chilis and quickly suspected they might have a hit on their hands. They were right. Fans crave their chili liqueurs. And it’s not just hot heads. Sure, they’re some of the spiciest liqueurs on the market, but you can also really taste the sweet and spicy flavors of a Mexican kitchen.
Where the Chili Liqueur has a sweet and smoky flavor, one sip of this new green elixir is like biting into a fresh and juicy poblano pepper. It’s not too spicy, not too sweet and it packs a ton of flavor.
Yes, mom, we’re eating drinking our veggies! Go green!
Tip of the tongue
Spike your salsa! That’s right, make a “Salsa Borracha,” aka a drunken salsa, by adding a splash to your next bowl of Cilantro Pineapple Salsa.
