° By the end of the night, tequila has a method of making even the best of us blush, and this drink is no exception. The tequila is softened and supported by the sweet strawberry flavor and moderate lemon tang, while the peppercorn includes a welcome kick of spice.

Cocktail developed by Francesco Lafranconi, executive director of mixology and spirits education at Southern Wine & & Spirits.
