Method
How to make a El Comediante

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
A day before making this cocktail, infuse the gold rum with red bell pepper slices and smoked/dried habanero
Remove the seeds and place half of a red bell pepper per 4oz rum, and however much habanero you desire (if it is smoked there will not be as much heat)
Let infuse in a covered jar for at least 12 hours, but 24 is ideal
When done, strain the rum into a clean jar and set aside
Combine rum, ginger syrup, lime juice, and ice into shaker
Shake and strain into the highball glass filled with ice
Top up with ginger ale (the spicier the better)
With the back of a spoon, float the red wine on top, then serve
~ If you do it correctly, you can see 3 separate layers (the rum mix, the ginger ale and the wine) and thus needs no garnish. ~

FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute ginger syrup with something else in El Comediante?

Yes, if you do not have ginger syrup, you can substitute it with a simple syrup mixed with a pinch of ground ginger or a few slices of fresh ginger. This will give you a similar sweetness and ginger flavor. Adjust the ginger amount according to taste.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

What is the best technique for combining the ingredients of El Comediante?

El Comediante should be prepared by shaking the lime juice, gold rum, and ginger syrup with ice in a cocktail shaker.

This technique ensures a well-mixed drink with a pleasant texture and temperature.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What garnish works best with El Comediante?
