The Office Party was designed by Mixologist David Nelson of IL Bistro in Seattle, Washington. It is one of the most interesting mixes of sweet, spicy, and tart that I have seen in a tequila drink for some time.
It begins with the 'rested' tequila from Hornitos - a good tequila for crafty shooters like this - with lime, grenadine, and a ginger syrup. That list alone sounds great, but the kicker for me was the red bell pepper, which is muddled for its juices. With this singular ingredient the drink comes together with a snappy taste that is unforgettable, and I encourage you to give the pepper juice a shot on its own... talk about a vitamin boost and potential hangover relief.
A note: This recipe is written to create a shot drink. However, strain it over ice in a highball glass and you have a very interesting sipper.
- Muddle the red bell pepper in a mixing glass to extract juice.
- Mix all other ingredients and shake gently.
- Strain into a shot glass and garnish with a wedge of lime.
