Bruja Smash | Cocktail Party

Bruja Smash

Bruja Smash blanco tequila cocktail

Seattle bartender Andrew Bohrer came up with this drink as a way to test the assertion that anise – a flavor found in some yellow herbal liqueurs – pairs well with red fruits.

His experiment bore out the hypothesis, and the result is a sublime cocktail bursting with fresh berry flavors and mysterious herbal notes. Bohrer uses Strega in his, but we’ve tried it to good effect with both yellow Chartreuse and the much more gentian-forward Suze.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice. Be sure to shake very hard, to break up the raspberries and bruise the mint. Double-strain through a fine mesh sieve into a short glass filled with crushed ice, and add more ice to top. Garnish with a mint spring or a fresh raspberry.
