Spicy Head Honcho – Mike Lehman wants you to meet the head honcho, a spicy one at that. When the bartender set out to create an original drink that featured one of Stache 1920s Drinking Den’s most popular liquors, he chose Casamigos Reposado Tequila. Minutes later, the Spicy Head Honcho was born. So who is the head honcho?

“Whoever can drink the most of these,” Lehman says, laughing.
