Although cool and refreshing, this week’s drink of the week, El Chapo from 5 West Pub, is far from your average fruity summer cocktail.
El Chapo mixes a wide range of flavors to bring us a unique taste. Bartender Matt made whipped up El Chapo for us by first muddling strawberries at the bottom of the glass. Then, he added Aperol, an orange Italian liqueur, and Hendrick’s Gin, and shook the mixture over ice. He topped it off with grapefruit beer and a strawberry garnish, presenting us with a light, bubbly drink that was mostly sweet and a tiny bit sour. With every sip, you’ll find a tiny fizz and fresh strawberry bits!
