Expanse Cocktail #74

The Rocinante is known across the Solar System as the independent ship crewed by a diverse, familial quartet of would-be knights-errant.

This drink shares its bourbon base with its Martian origin, but now has considerably more color and heat.


  • 2 ounces ancho chile-infused bourbon
  • ⅛ ounce coffee liqueur
  • ⅛ ounce pomegranate liqueur


Infuse bourbon with 1 seeded ancho chile for ½ hour. Pour all ingredients into a rocks glass over a single large ice cube and stir briefly to combine them. Garnish with a strip of orange peel.
