Last week two of my friends had both had bad days so I told them I’d make them a special cocktail and we’d have a little patio vent session. Milagro Tequila and Shaker & Spoon (a really cool mixology kit – like an artisanal Fresh Direct but for cocktails!) had sent me a press mailer (honestly, I think I may subscribe to Shaker & Spoon after getting this as it is so cool) so I used my friends as an excuse to test out one of the recipes.
I loved the results. I am a big tequila fan (as are all my friends) and this Mimeo Cocktail Recipe is a fun alternative to serving Palomas (one of my usual go-to’s!) Chinotto is an Italian soda with notes of citrus and caramel – it’s delicious! It requires a few new additions to your bar cart but that’s kind of fun.. now I want to spritz all my cocktails with orange oil!
Mimeo Cocktail Recipe
- 2 oz tequila blanco (I used Milagro)
- 2 oz Chinotto Soda
- 1/4 oz Rice Wine Vinegar
- 1 piece candied ginger
- 1 spritz orange oil
Add the tequila, soda, and rice wine vinegar to a highball or rocks glass (I used these Fferone glasses) filled with ice (I used the large cubes from this set), spritz with orange oil, and top with candied ginger.
It’s delicious and creamy and just… yummy! Reminded me a little bit (oddly) of cream soda.

They are SO good!
If you care about the look of the ice you can boil water and pout it into your ice molds. It freezes completely clear!
I know! Too lazy in this case but it’s such a good tip!
Looks amazing! Where did you get those beautiful glasses??
They’re linked in the blog post if you read it! ❤️
This sounds delish!
Thank you so much for linking to the ingredients! I couldn’t find edible orange oil to save my life! 😀 ordered that and the chinotto this week thanks to you!
