The Nantucket Bite — A delicious sweet and spicy tequila cocktail


A few weeks ago, I went to Woodward in the Ames Hotel for my birthday. It was my second time there and both times I had the same drink… the Nantucket Night – a tantalizing blend of Don Julio Blanco, muddled with cranberries, jalapeno, agave nectar and fresh lime juice.. This drink was so good, that I decided to replicate it at home… and the result was great!

Since I changed things around a little, I decided to rename the drink to the Nantucket Bite… since it has a nice peppery bite to it!

BFW’s Nantucket Bite

3 oz good tequila — I like HerraDura Anejo
2 tbsp superfine sugar
1 lime
3 slices jalapeno pepper, plus 1 for garnish
1 heaping tablespoon frozen, sweetened cranberries

Into a cocktail shaker, use a lime juicer to extract the juice of one lime. Add 2 tbsp sugar to the lime juice. Add the frozen cranberries (which you can get at Trader Joe’s) and the 3 slices of jalapeno pepper. Using a muddler, muddle until the cranberries and jalapenos have been sufficiently pulverized and the sugar has dissolved.

Add 3 oz of tequilla and fill remaing glass with ice. Shake until very cold and well mixed. Strain into an Old Fashioned glass and top off ice. Garnish with a slice of jalapeno and enjoy! You may want to make sure that no seeds came through the strainer… seeds can add a very hot surprise to your drink!
