This post is brought to you as part of a partnership with Tequila Pueblo Viejo!
The other day I received a couple bottles of tequila from Pueblo Viejo, a family-owned tequila focused on living in the moment while celebrating its cultural heritage. I felt really inspired by their commitment to their roots while embracing the contemporary American lifestyle and I wanted to make a drink that included a bit of my heritage to create a bit of a cultural cocktail. For the drink below I added some persimmons, my favorite Indiana flavor, and used my NYC scarf as a backdrop!
- 2 oz Pueblo Viejo tequila
- 1 oz lemon juice
- .75 oz simple syrup
- 1/4 persimmon, muddled
- 3 cardamom pods, muddled
Add the persimmon and cardamom pods with the tequila. Muddle until you have a relatively consistent pulp at the bottom of your shaker. Strain out solids with a fine mesh strainer and discard. Add other ingredients with ice, shake, and strain over ice! Garnish with a cardamom pod or an edible flower if you've still got them. 🙂
