“The second drink was a re purposed Y Tu Mole Tambien, slightly compressed in scale and re-dubbed a “Tarnished Halo,” a nod to Rosenquist’s 1973 painting, “A Pale Silver Halo.” It’s essentially an almond margarita–blanco tequila, lime juice, dark agave and and Orgeat–topped off with Bittermens Xocolatl Mole bitters and served in a glass rimmed with Almond flour, sea salt and Ovaltine… just ridiculously tasty. Mark started it off wanting to make a drink that used Ovaltine and wound up crafting liquid gold.
TARNISHED HALO (a.k.a. Y Tu Mole Tambien)
“The Tarnished Halo seemed to be the real hit…Crispin Glover, a charming fellow, seemed to fall quite in love with the Halo.”
