We hit the haboob jackpot with none other than Alexandria Bowler, bartender at Lon's at The Hermosa Inn. This woman made our dry, dusty, sandy storm dreams come true -- not only did her version look like a haboob, it tasted delicious.

Bowler used a collection of skills she's learned from her mentors, Jason Asher, Travis Nass, and Tyson Bueller, together with her own creativity to come up with a haboob cocktail that went so far as having dust float on top of it.

This wasn't technically a competition, but if it was, she'd take the cake.

Here's the recipe:
2.5 oz. High Spirits Gin
.75 oz. cactus blossom syrup
1 oz. lemon juice
3 dashes of mole bitters (What?! We thought the same thing.)
Top with orange flower water and chamomile dust

I see a Haboob cook book on the horizon (actually you can't see it because there's a haboob!)

What's even greater about the "winner" is it uses High Spirits gin, made in Flagstaff. Will have to give it a swirl!
