Group Siesta

Inspired by the Hemingway Daiquiri, the tequila-based Siesta cocktail takes drinkers to the highlands of Jalisco rather than the beaches of Cuba. But this large format version of the sweet-tart cocktail happens to be perfect for sandy shores—be they in Mexico, Cuba or even New Jersey. Great with beach-friendly snacks like chips and salsa or watermelon wedges, the drink is made with two whole bottles of blanco tequila, which create a sturdy base for limeade, grapefruit juice, amaro and smoked salt-infused syrup. Makes approximately one gallon.
