A refreshing, fruit and tequila cocktail with a hint of cayenne for a perfect drink that can be made ahead, shaken with ice, and served.
It is the perfect time of year for a fresh and fruity cocktail with a cooling kick of tequila. Ibis Mediterranean Restaurant & Lounge in New York City’s Midtown brings just the combination we need with their Cleopatra’s Kiss. Be sure not to skip the fresh sage or the dash of cayenne, the spices add a huge boost of lovable flavor. Our favorite part of this cocktail is that is can be muddled and mixed in a large batch ahead of time. When your guests arrive, simply shake with ice and serve. Check out Ibis for more inventive bites and drinks.
