Ciquita Picante

Lovely strawberry and tequila number with a pepper-y kick.
2 oz Blanco tequila
2   Strawberry (small to medium)
1 sli Jalapeño (about 1/2 inch slice)
34 oz Lime juice
34 oz Cherry Liqueur, Cherry Heering
2 ds Orange bitters
2 bsp Agave syrup
2 oz Ginger beer
Instructions
Muddle fruit and pepper w lime juice. Add tequila, liqueur, bitters, syrup. Shake with ice. Add ginger beer, then strain and pour over ice filled glasses. Garnish w half strawberry.
Notes
You can muddle with all the liquids in (except the ginger beer), but this staging makes it more manageable -- especially if you're making a double batch.
History
Developed by Vincenzo Marianella at the Copa d'Oro in Santa Monica, CA. ...The capital of "what's not to like?"

  • Refreshing with a wonderful peppery kick that stays behind the strawberries. The ginger beer is a great touch too. — ☆☆☆☆☆
