Margarita in Fuoco |
Available at Casa Limone (New York, NY)
Created by Alex Teisanu, CEO/Director of Casa Limone
2 oz of Espolon Tequila infused with peppers (bell, roasted habanero, roasted poblano)
1 oz Triple sec
1 oz Lime juice
1 oz Simple syrup
.5 oz Solerno
Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Shake, then strain over ice into a rocks glass with a salted rim. Garnish with a lime wedge and pepperoncini.
2 oz Amaro Montenegro
1 oz Blanco Tequila
.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
.35 oz Freshly squeezed lime juice
.70 oz Grand Marnier
2.25 oz Sage-infused añejo tequila*
4 fresh sage leaves
Half spoonful of icing sugar
Slide the rim of the glass along a quarter of a lime, then place the glass in a bowl of sage salt. Place ice cubes and all ingredients in a shaker, and shake vigorously so that the ice cubes crush the sage. Filter through both a sieve and a chinois strainer into the sage salt-rimmed glass. Place a few leaves on the surface of the liquid.
*Sage-infused añejo tequila: Infuse 15 sage leaves in 700ml of tequila for 48 hours. Filter.
**Sage salt: Sprinkle sea salt on an aluminum tray, then place the sage leaves side by side on the tray, ensuring they are perfectly flat. Sprinkle them with salt once more. Place the tray in a warm oven (approx. 160°F) and remove after 20 minutes. Place the salt and sage in a blender and mix briefly.
