The Lituation: New York City’s Sexiest Spring Cocktail

Confession: I’ve never been on that reposado. I like my tequila like I like my men, a tad on the younger side. Thus, blancos are usually more my speed. That is until I sipped, ok, gulped the Chica Fresa cocktail at The Clam in New York City’s West Village.

It is a sexy springtime rendez-vous in your mouth. Tony, the charming bartender at my favorite seasonal seafood restaurant, and creator of Chica Fresa advised me to resist the temptation of drinking it too fast. I couldn’t. I didn’t. You see, it tastes like fresh strawberry juice with a hint of tequila. Yummy! Five minutes later though, it felt like a shot of tequila with a hint of strawberries. Nice! On my second round, I sipped it…delightfully. See you on the patio at The Clam.
