Cocktail: Sass in a Glass

Recipe: Mix:

  • 2 oz. of house-infused tequila-vodka blend with jalapeño peppers
  • 1 1/4 oz. fresh pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 ounce agave syrup

Shake over ice. Strain into cocktail glass. Serve.

“On the mouth, it’s pineapple; its finish is jalapeño. It’s not overly sweet, not overly spicy. The jalapeños cut through the acid of the juice,” said Halperin. “It’s got this beautiful finish, this kick.”
