La Chilindrina

October 2018

This cocktail, featuring brightly speckled pink dragonfruit, is inspired by the Mexican TV character La Chilindrina from the iconic show Chavo del Ocho. Oyamel dedicates its Day of the Dead festival every year to a Mexican celebrity, and this year the honor goes to Roberto Gómez Bolaños, also known as El Chesperito. On Chavo del Ocho, La Chilindrina is an 8-year old girl with bright red hair and freckles - a perfect match for the speckled dragonfruit.
