Cocktail Recipe: Picante de la Casa from Cecconi's/Soho House



This joint effort by the teams at Cecconi's and Soho House (both places most people don't regularly go to) has some heat from the chili pepper garnish as it is -- need it spicier?

Picante de la Casa
2 oz tequila (they use Cazadores)
1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
¾ oz agave nectar
12 cilantro leaves
¼ inch piece of a Fresno chili pepper
