In this post we're shaking a “Loisaida Avenue” cocktail. The drink recipe is by Leo Robitschek, one of our biggest inspirations when it comes to craft cocktails with surprising ingredients, compositions and even drink names.
In this drink there is favorite ingredient green Chartreuse as well as a deliciously big splash of fresh lemon juice. The jalapeno-infused tequila combined with the smoky mezcal gives the drink a pretty cool kick, which is perfectly balanced by the two syrups used.
