Gary Regan first published Ted Kilgore’s Devil’s Soul cocktail in his book, 101 Best New Cocktails 2012. It's truly an unusual mix of ingredients with spicy rye whiskey, smoky mezcal, 2 amaros and a floral elderflower liquer - but strangely, it works.
"Ted Kilgore, the Crazy Bastard from Missouri, put together ingredients that absolutely positively do not belong in the same glass. And yet again he’s come up with a fabulous drink. Well done, Ted. You Crazy Bastard." - Gaz Regan
