…from the Perspectives’ Happy Hour Bar
How you doin’? It’s that time of the week when you are counting the minutes to Happy Hour. I spent time with a client talking about Margaritas this week. We talked about installing Margarita slushy machines, but you can’t do that at home, and as much as we love them neither man nor woman lives by margaritas alone. So, fortunately for us, the people at Avión came up with hotsy-totsy cocktail that will chill your spine and warm the cockles of your heart.
I like Avión Reserva Cristalino tequila. It is a crystal-clear aged tequila that defies both gravity and convention. Aged yet clear, Reserva Cristalino masterfully showcases the brightness the agave plant with the complexity of an Añejo Tequila.
It is distilled from hand-selected agave plants grown at the high elevations and is a unique blend of Añejo, with a touch of Extra Añejo Tequila. Avión Reserva Cristalino is truly for those who like to explore and enjoy life and a good stiff drink.
You will be surprised that this tequila is clear as water. That’s due to the double charcoal filtration process that removes the aged color and truly enhances its fruity and floral character. With the taste and aroma of a barrel aged liquid combined with its crystalline clarity, it really is the smoothest of contradictions.
Prep time: 3 minutes
Yield: 1 cocktail
2 lime wedges
1 teaspoon coarse cocktail salt
2 thin fresh jalapeño slices, plus 2 more for garnish
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
2 ounces Avión Silver
1 ounce grapefruit juice
4 ounces grapefruit sparkling water
ChefSecret: I like to use big ice cubes as it makes a great cocktail. You can purchase super ice cube trays on Amazon.
Quip of the Day: Happy hour is slightly different in the Soviet Union. There are no ice cubes or orange-peel twists in the vodka. Also, it lasts all day, because there is nothing else to do.”
