…from the Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? Okay, okay—I know you think I’m stretching the bar (get it, the bar?) a bit, but high risks reap high rewards. For this Happy Hour Friday, give this cocktail a good shake. No, this isn’t a joke. It is a rather sophisticated, well-balanced, smooth slow-sipper, showstopper. Say that three times fast!
In this recipe the muddled avocado gives the sipper a smooth, creamy texture—like a whiskey sour. The cool, fresh mint leaves mellow out the sharpness of the tequila. The jalapeño gives a healthy hint of spice. The lime juice, triple sec and simple syrup, are just sweet enough to round out the flavors. Shake up a few of these at your next dinner party or any occasion with your besties. Just follow the recipe below and enjoy.
