High West’s Dead Man’s Boot

deadmans boot cocktail

There are two drinks in Park City I dream about. One is Pimp My Ride from Billy Blanco’s and the other is courtesy of High West Distillery. These days, however, between the tourists and the bougie waitstaff, it’s impossible to get a table at High West or even a seat at the bar.

So now I make the Dead Man’s Boot at home…and you can too.


1.5 oz Double Rye! (or whatever your favorite whiskey)
1 oz Reposado Tequila
0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
0.5 oz Simple Syrup
Fever Tree Ginger Beer
Lime Wedge Garnish

Add all ingredients except ginger beer in a cocktail shaker. Add chip ice, shake, strain over ice, and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wedge. 

Watch it being made at 1:10-
