The Escondido Romano is made with maraschino liqueur, Cynar (artichoke) amaro, Hangar One's new limited-edition Chipotle flavored vodka, and sparkling wine.

It is amazingly original and complex and smoky and perfect. I suggest asking for it at Nopa- but you'd better hurry. Neyah says that they were only allocated four bottles of this batch of the Hangar chipotle vodka.
The chipotle contains separate infusions/distillations of smoked jalapeno and bell peppers, Fresno chili peppers, habanero peppers, and probably some other stuff. You can taste them all in the vodka. I had some of the jalapeno spirit right off the still a while back and damn it's tasty. Distiller Lance Winters produced 1500 six-bottle cases of the stuff in total. Yet Nopa received only four. Stingy.
