We have spoilers for the March 2023 Shaker & Spoon box!  The box theme is DShift Drinks: Reposado Remix Box.

More and more menu real estate these days is being devoted to signature cocktails. No longer an afterthought or hidden in a booklet among hundreds of wines by the bottle, the bartender’s thoughtfully crafted offerings—tailored to fit the cuisine and sensibility of the establishment—have continued to rise in prominence and visibility.

And to tap into the inspired synergy between the front and back of the house, the Shift Drinks: Reposado Remix Box features three tequila reposado cocktails, two of which were first featured in the inaugural round back in early 2019, created by coworker chefs and bartenders at the time. The other one we, your servers, will recite as an ear-catching special of the day: a fresh, new offering from Sother Teague, who’s no stranger to straddling the line between the culinary and cocktail universes!   

Each features boundary-pushing ingredients assembled with masterful technique and flair. And with a step-by-step food pairing for each drink, the local hotspot with an hours-long waitlist’s got nothing on your home this March. Make your reservation today and pull up a chair!

The Last Night I Dreamed, created by Patrick Natola and Chef Justin Rucobo, is a bracing and crisp daiquiri-margarita hybrid that points the way forward to sunnier days ahead made for perusing the local farmer’s market for ingredients and inspiration. There’s a bounty of fresh, green produce packed into this reposado cocktail by way of an herbaceous and vegetal cilantro-jalapeño syrup and a dose of fresh lime. 

Emilio “Milo” Salehi and Chef Arnold Eric Wong pay tribute to the time-honored traditions of the Mexican kitchen with their old fashioned, the Mortar & Pestle. The toasted nuttiness from the sesame and coconut nods to the preparation of a mole sauce, which typically requires dozens of ingredients and several days.

Luckily, quite a bit less work is required to combine the syrup and extract on ice and stir, along with tequila and, of course, mole bitters. The result is rich, earthy, and unforgettable.

Driftwood Bitters, a Donn’s Mix–adjacent blend of bright grapefruit and cinnamon, was Sother Teague’s very first contribution to the bitters shelf. And it makes its S&S debut next month in his Ash and Elm, a tasty, tall number that combines tequila reposado with hibiscus-lemon-rosemary syrup and grapefruit soda, with a ring of Sother’s hibiscus salt!
