They include the Slam Dunk Disco made with Ilegal Mezcal, El Tesoro Reposado Tequila, white miso, banana and apricot; and Hot Lava made with blanco tequila, ayuk pasilla, pineapple, toasted sesame and hot honey.

Wiggle Room is the brainchild of Eric Kruvant, Jaime Felber and Darin Rubell, leaders on the NYC bar scene for the last 20 years. The trio is responsible for famed downtown spots including Mister Paradise, Pretty Ricky’s, Boulton & Watt, Drexler’s, Paper Daisy and more.
