Marigold Ofrenda Cocktail

Espoln.Tequila's picture
Created by Christopher Bostick The Varnish Bar, Los Angeles Bostick is especially drawn to the imagery of Dia de los Muertos. In Day of the Dead celebrations, the marigold is known as the “flower of the dead,” which helped to inspire this drink. Its fragrance is believed to attract spirits and guide them to their ofrendas (offerings). This cocktail’s light citrus flavor combined with the kick of Chile de Arbol is spirited enough to guide any soul home.
