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.
- 1 12-oz can limeade
- 10 oz water
- 375 ml Cappelletti Aperitivo
- 1 32-oz bottle grapefruit juice
- 2 cups simple syrup
- 2 750-ml bottles blanco tequila
Add all ingredients to a gallon-size container. Shake and refrigerate.
