The Jalisco Holiday Shooter.

Not that we don't love combining all of our shots with Thanksgiving entrées, but sometimes you just need a shot of pure tequila goodness. New York mixologist Leo Robitschek shares his tequila shot to get us even more in the spirit of the holidays; this infused batch of Jalisco will put everyone at the dinner table in a good mood. 


  • 1 bottle (750 ml) Tequila Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro
  • 3 whole star anise pieces
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cloves


Place star anise, cinnamon sticks, and cloves in a bottle of Tequila Don Julio 70 Añejo Claro.  Let the infusion sit for two days, and then serve.
