Gomme Syrup Recipes

La Bandita

La Bandita

La Bandita will steal your heart and then steal your wallet. This sophisticated sipper calls for some specific ingredients, but substitutions are allowed:

Swap the tequila for 1.5 oz. of smoky Mezcal for a “Smokey y La Bandita.”

Add a dash of grapefruit bitters if that's your style.

Just don't forget the Ancho Reyes chile liqueur. It's not the same without it.


2 oz. Roca Patrón Silver Tequila

1 oz. Fresh Grapefruit Juice

0.5 oz. Eli Mason Gomme Syrup

0.5 oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao

0.25 oz. Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur

Combine all ingredients over ice and stir until well chilled. Pour over fresh ice and garnish with dried pasilla chiles.
