Yum Alert: Ground To Glass Cocktail

I’m totally obsessed with this cocktail from The Summit Bar. In fact, it’s probably my favorite cocktail in Manhattan. It’s made with tequila but it doesn’t taste like girly alcohol. I can’t wait to drink one later tonight. Happy Friday, y’all.


1 cucumber slice, muddled

2 oz. Corralejo Anejo Tequila

3⁄4 oz. red pepper purée (made in blender)

1 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice

3⁄4 oz. agave nectar

Dash of orange bitters (try Fee Brothers homemade version)


Shake and then strain into double old fashioned glass garnished with hickory salt on half of the rim.
