Red Pepper Daisy

John Lermayer amps up the iconic pairing of reposado tequila and lime juice with the vegetal flavor of red bell pepper in this simple variant on the classic Daisy.

 

4 dime-size slices red bell pepper
1 ½ oz. reposado tequila
½ oz. agave nectar
½ oz. fresh lime juice
Chilled club soda
Ice cubes
Tools: cocktail shaker, muddler, strainer
Glass: highball
Garnish: spear of red bell pepper

Place the pepper slices in a shaker and gently crush with a muddler. Add tequila, agave nectar and lime juice and fill the shaker with ice. Shake well until chilled, about 10 seconds. Strain into an ice-filled glass and add club soda to taste. Garnish.
