Cocktail: The Spaghetti Western
» 1½ oz. Roger Clyne’s Mexican Moonshine Reposado Tequila
» ½ oz. Aperol
» Squeeze of lime
» Orange Sanpellegrino
» Dash of salt
» Garnish: Luxardo cherry

The Beach House’s General Manager Eric Shapiro gave the background story on the cocktail’s origin: “The Spaghetti Western was created late one night, or early one morning, by Mexican Moonshine Proprietor Roger Clyne and his business partner Bill Tumber. These two men put their heads together to try and come up with an alternative to a margarita as well as pay homage to the Italian-American culture in Rhode Island by using Italian ingredients. The end result was the Spaghetti Western. We are fortunate at The Beach House to be able to use this tasty recipe.”
