Constructive Summer

Constructive Summer, named after the Hold Steady song of the same title, was developed by one of our superfans (@lagoonlane) who has been madly experimenting with Alkemista. This recipe captures the free-spirited feeling of good music, close friends and the breathtaking beach sunsets during the last days of summer. But the blackberry-infused tequila and citrus undertones in this cocktail will help you stay positive long after the summer is over.

  • 1.5oz blackberry-infused blanco tequila (recipe below)
  • 1oz creme de pamplemousse (Giffard)
  • .25oz maraschino liqueur (Luxardo)
  • .5oz fresh lime juice
  • Shake and strain into ice-filled rocks glass
  • Garnish with grapefruit peel
  • Add 6oz (apporx 10) organic blackberries to Alkemista filter
  • Add 750ml premium blanco tequila
  • Infuse for 7 days (agitate daily)
