La Perdida cocktail - Jessica Abel

La Perdida cocktail

Matt is a huge cocktail fanatic, and invented this amazing drink in honor of the la Perdida book release. Try it; you won’t be sorry. Well, maybe a little sorry if you have more than a couple.

It’s delicious (and deceptively “quaffable”…might as well be called La Noche Perdida (the Lost Night)).

1 oz. silver tequila
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon simple syrup

Shake tequila, lime juice and simple syrup with ice and strain into a
champagne flute. top with chilled champagne.

Tip: don’t fail to shake with ice. There’s a crucial amount of watering-down that happens in that stage that we skipped at the party where we made them by the pitcher.
