A tried and true summer classic. It really doesn’t get more refreshing than this.
Rub a lime wedge along the rim of a highball glass and dip into a mix of salt and cayenne pepper. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Add 5 parts beer, ⅓ part hot sauce, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and 1⅓ parts lime juice. Finish with 1 pinch celery salt and 1 pinch ground black pepper. Garnish with lime.
2. Green Gimlet
This is what they mean by “green juice”, right?
Muddle a couple of basil leaves and ½ oz fresh lime juice in a shaker. Fill with ice and add 2 parts gin, 1½ parts celery juice and ½ part basil-infused simple syrup. Shake vigorously until cold and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with basil and celery leaves.
3. Bell Pepper Margarita
While the Margarita is a brunch staple, we bet your guests never tasted one like this before.
Combine 1½ parts reposado tequila, 1 part fresh red bell pepper juice, 1 part fresh lime juice, ¾ part honey syrup (half honey, half water) and a handful of fresh cilantro into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled rocks glass over ice. Garnish with a wheel of lime.
