Gustavo Tequila Cocktail

The Gustavo Tequila Cocktail

Cucumber and peppers come together in this well-balanced drink. By using bell peppers instead of a spicier chile, New Orleans bartender, David Bliszcz, finds the ideal balance in the Gustavo, a delightful bell pepper cocktail. The recipe, served exclusively during a Tales of the Cocktail industry event and featured in Imbibe Magazine, is now available for you to shake up your next brunch.
