¡Salud to Cinco de Mayo cócteles!
Although we are far from the U.S.-Mexico border here in Seattle and my kids can speak more Spanish than I can, we do have a cat named Nacho Libre and I’m always happy to lift a glass in celebration. I think that’s enough to get my tequila revved and ready for Cinco de Mayo.
St. RosemaryLeaves from a 1-inch rosemary sprig, plus 1 rosemary sprig for garnish ¼ oz fresh lime juice 1¾ oz reposado tequila ¾ oz St-Germain elderflower liqueur 1¼ oz apple juice, preferably unfiltered
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the rosemary leaves with the lime juice. Add ice and all of the remaining ingredients except the garnish and shake well. Double strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the rosemary sprig.
As always, check out my Glossary of Spirits page for alcohol and mixer definitions and details.
