Maybe you've had a Michelada in Mexico? Typical of the north, a chilled lager-style beer meets Worcestershire sauce, lime juice, hot sauce and soy sauce in a salt and chili-rimmed glass.
That's what first comes to mind with TIMO's Chipolte Margarita, although it's a treat all its own. Instead of tequila, this 'rita is actually more like a "Miami-spiced" vodka screwdriver. Try out this recipe at home, or let TIMO's bar whip up a perfect specimen while you wait for its Maine sea scallops with grilled octopus, chick peas, lemon, and rosemary from the Miami Spice menu to arrive.
17624 Collins Avenue
2.5oz Chipotle Hangar One Vodka

1.5 oz Homemade sour mix (or favorite store brand variety)
½ oz Orange juice
Fill shaker with ice. Add all ingredients and shake well. Pour into spiced rimmed glass and garnish with a lime.
For the rim:
Mix equal parts (a pinch of each per glass you're rimming) of paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and salt.
