Serrano Pepper – Celery Gimlet

Drink: Serrano Pepper-Celery Gimlet
Type: Alcoholic
From: Extra Virgin
Price: $10
Description: Cool

Hopping up to the bar at Extra Virgin on a Tuesday afternoon, I was pleased to see Berto Santoro bartending, not only because he’s incredibly talented (recently named Best Bartender by KC Magazine), but because he’s also ridiculously nice and fun to be around. I asked him to make me something delicious, and he sure did deliver.

The drink: cool, spicy, refreshing, crisp.

Most people are probably used to the coolness from a lime cocktail, but the addition of celery adds a whole other level of crispness that is really nice. The pepper adds a tickle of spice in the back of the throat and great flavor without being overpowering or too spicy. It’s a very well-balanced cocktail, super sip-able and very fun.
