Patrón Pimiento Cocktail
|Bell peppers||1 Cup (16 tbs), cored, seeded and sliced into 1/8 inch wide strips (Use A Variety Of Best-Of-Market Ones)|
|Serrano pepper/Jalapeno pepper||1 , cored, seeded and sliced into 1/8 inch wide strips|
|Lime||1⁄2 , juiced|
In cocktail mixing glass, add 9 slices bell pepper strips (preferably 3 red, 3 orange and 3 yellow), 1 strip Serrano or jalapeño pepper, cilantro leaves and lime juice. Muddle well to bring out pepper and cilantro flavors. Add Patrón Añejo Tequila and ice. Shake well and strain into chilled martini or flared cocktail glass. Garnish with bell pepper strip and cilantro leaves.
*This gives the cocktail a nice kick, but of course, can be left out for the
faint of heart.
