fat ½ oz lemon juice
½ oz honey syrup
½ oz Yellow Chartreuse
½ oz mezcal (we use Del Maguey Vida)
1½ oz tequila (we use Lunazul)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain over ice.
1 c water
1 c honey
Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, and stir in honey. Store in a glass container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
3 serrano peppers
1 bottle of tequila
Pour a bottle of tequila into a cambro or pitcher, and add 3 sliced serrano peppers. Infuse for 5 hours to 2 days, to taste. Strain, pour back into bottle. You should definitely label it. If you’re feeling feisty, use other hot peppers such as jalapeños or habañeros. If you’re feeling insane, use ghost peppers.
A Sour is traditionally made with a base spirit such as brandy, whisky, or gin, plus citrus juice and sugar (and often an egg white). What makes it a Daisy is the addition of a sweetener like grenadine, curaçao, or Chartreuse.
Margarita means daisy in Spanish. It is the most popular form of this category of cocktails. The Yellow Chartreuse in our Daisy imparts a flavor profile that reminds us of a meadow of wildflowers and honey. The honey and lemon provide a delicateness to the drink, which then gets a kick from smoky mezcal and spicy tequila.
This drink is deceptively boozy. You’ve been warned.
