I’m a repeat buyer of Ancho Reyes Chili Liquor. If you want a bit of smoke and roast chili flavor, this is great. In a cocktail you can use it to add some interesting notes to support your base, best in small amount 10cl or less. It doesn’t stand well on its own for my taste, but a little in a Manhattan or other bourbon cocktail is memorable. Looking for spicy hot chili? This is not the one you are looking for.

Born of a cultural revolution in 1920’s Puebla, Ancho Reyes is the original chile liqueur — a unique blend of the heat, sweetness, smoke and spice of the chile Ancho that predates all other spicy liqueurs by nearly a century. Ancho Reyes evokes a sense of timelessness causing a feeling of nostalgia. The versatility of this liquor transcends at any time, station or geography, being able to be enjoyed alone or mixed, as an aperitif or digestive.View all products by Ancho ReyesCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

It is not what I expected. It only has a hint of spice, which was what most disappointed me. It is also very sweet. So far I haven’t come up with a cocktail recipe, or any mixer that makes it palatable.

Makes a super interesting spicy twist for a Manhattan (use this in place of sweet vermouth and skip the bitters)!

This liqueur has lots of actual heat, and also adds a warm, spicy cinnamon flavor to your drink. It’s a great, unexpected addition to your favorite cocktail. However, it may not be the best match for every spirit, so definitely make a test round before serving. Excellent product!!
