Pepino’s Gun

 

Recipe

40ml Reposado Tequila
15ml lemon juice
20ml apple juice
20ml simple syrup
3 slices cucumber

Method
Muddle cucumber and shake with all ingredients, strain into a cocktail glass and garnish with a discarded lemon slice and a cucumber butterfly on the rim. To make a butterfly cut radii on two thin cucumber slices, interlock these and make a small incision at 90 degrees from the interlocked cuts. Place this incision on the rim and pull apart the two wheels to form the wings

Created by Kevin in 2008, this drink uses the natural affinity between tequila and cucumber. Try replacing lime wedges with cucumber and Tajin for a refreshing shot alternative
