The Expanse Cocktails Project

Expanse Cocktail #80

After the Battle of Ganymede, everyone wants to find their loved ones. For that, you need a hacker. Someone who can trace every camera image and find people wherever they’ve gone. Roma is one such hacker. He doesn’t work for cheap — after the colony’s collapse, money isn’t worth much, so he wants canned chicken. How much have you got?

We knew we wanted a fresh hot pepper and gave a lot of thought to what kind of pepper to use. After testing, the habanero was exactly what we wanted to go with the other ingredients in the drink, all of which play well with its especially fruity (while still being spicy!) flavor.


  • 1 ounce white rum
  • 1 ounce tequila (añejo)
  • 1 ounce finely strained tomato juice
  • ¼ ounce Amaro Montenegro
  • 1 dash lemon juice


Slice a habanero pepper and use the juice to rim a rocks glass with granulated chicken bouillon. Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until cold. Strain into the the prepared rocks glass over ice. Garnish with the whole habanero pepper.
