It’s not often Jim Meehan gives up the recipe to one of his masterfully conceived cocktails. What we’ve got here was inspired by, “a recent stroll through the Tompkins Square Park Sunday Farmer ’s Market and six dusty bottles of Strega in our basement inspired this seasonal sour. Strega, a complex, bittersweet herbal liqueur is also the word for witch in Italian.”
- 2 oz. Cuervo Platino tequila
- .75 oz fresh lemon juice
- .5 oz Strega
- 1 Barspoon of apple butter
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, then add ice.
Shake & strain into a coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist.
