More than 250 pubs, bars and cocktail lounges participating in London Cocktail Week. Each one has created a special drink. Perhaps the smallest of the participants is Casita, tucked into Ravey Street in the city’s Shoreditch neighborhood. Despite the tiny space, Casita is offering two special drinks this week. Here’s a riff on one, El Felix, a tall mix of tequila, chiles, basil, and lime.
London EC2A 4QW
1 1/2 ounces tequila
1 slice jalapeño
A 1/2-inch square of sweet red pepper
1/4 ounce agave syrup
Chilled soda water
Muddle the jalapeño, sweet pepper, lime, raspberries, and syrup in a collins glass. Add several ice cubes, gin, top with soda. Stir.
Tasting notes: Invigorating heat, spice and tartness.
Tomorrow: Thames theme
