El Jefe Cocktail

El Jefe CocktailEl Jefe (The Boss) is a sophisticated upgrade of the classic Tequila Sunrise. It uses mezcal and passion fruit nectar along with a splash of ginger. We have a great selection of mezcal in the store—just ask our Wine & Spirits department for a recommendation.

And, you can serve this cocktail up to El Jefe on Father’s Day for a delicious refreshment.

El Jefe
Yields 1 cocktail

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the mezcal and passion fruit nectar and shake well.

Strain the cocktail into an ice-filled highball glass. Stir in the chilled ginger beer. Slowly pour the grenadine into the glass over the back of a spoon or by drizzling it down the side of the glass, allowing it to settle at the bottom.
