Not that we need National Tequila Day as an excuse to break out this spicy recipe, but we’re using it anyway. Celebrate with this ode-to-summer peach cocktail from Herd Provisions in Charleston, which contains a perfect mixture of Aperol, lime, peach shrub, and a healthy quick of jalapeño-infused tequila. The punchy, sweet heat sip brings you back for more. If making the cocktail at home, you can substitute a 50/50 mix of peach schnapps and apple cider vinegar for the peach shrub.
2 ounces jalapeño-infused tequila
1½ ounces lime juice
1½ ounces Aperol
1 ounce peach shrub
Garnish: 1 sprig of mint
- In a cocktail shaker, add ice, tequila, lime juice, Aperol, and peach shrub, and shake until a frost forms on outside of tin. Strain into a rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with mint.
