Ted Kilgore, the beverage manager of Taste by Niche in Missouri, based this cocktail on the natural pairing of agave nectar and tequila, which come from the same plant.

This is a perfect cocktail! Tastes like a spa in a glass. I served mine in a margarita or martini glass otherwise there's no way this would make enough for a large glass as shown. I also add triple sec or cointreau instead of agave. Finally I marinate my tequila in the jalapeno so less to muddle. Delicious!!
This cocktail is new to me and looks worth trying, I've been collecting cocktails and I've found a lot at ZCOCKTAILS.
This is my new favorite drink! I wouldn't really call it savory. The result is more like a refreshing and modern take on a margarita, with lovely herbal notes and a kick at the end with the jalapeno! I am totally making this for all my future summer parties (and totally using agave syrup instead of regular simple syrup for other tequila-based drinks in the future!)My only gripe was that while the photo shows a large-ish looking glass filled with the cocktail, the recipe makes only about half a drink I would say? I served it in Mason jars and, even filled with ice, they were still only half full of liquid. Just something to keep in mind; the proportions were perfect.
