Tuco-Style Freakout – “The Transport”

May 2, 2016


We love getting cocktail recipes from our friends.  Rob Stone of Slows BBQ created another way to enjoy our Agave mead with lime, Tuco-Style Freakout.  Click for the recipe of “The Transport”.


The Transport

“The Transport is based on a cocktail called a Paloma. The Paloma in my opinion is better balanced and even more delicious than a classic margarita. Sparkly grapefruity drinks in the summer and even the smell of grapefruit “Transport” you to a vacation style mindset. When approached by B. ­Nektar to make a cocktail with their Agave­ Lime Tuco Style Freakout, I was looking for a solution to finish off the Mezcall-y Paloma Riff I was Working On. I originally was going to use the New York based Dr. Brown’s Soda Company’s Cel­Ray Soda, but, was having some difficulty procuring it at the time and needed a viable solution. In walks B. Nektar with the Tuco-Style Freakout. Eureka!!! There was the answer. It was as if the periodic table aligned perfectly and provided me with the ultimate chemical equation! Who would’ve calculated it, a Sparkling agave lime flavored mead to top off my cocktail! I had never worked with mead in the past for a cocktail, however, the sparkling semi-dry nature of it didn’t overpower the cocktail with sweetness and left me with a bit of wiggle room. A bit of simple, a squeeze of lime, a few shakes of Celery bitters and Voila! The Transport was born.” – Rob Stone
