Secret Recipe: Sungold Zinger from Range
7x7 asks the city's chefs for the recipes to their most loved cocktails, bar snacks, starters, mains, and desserts. If there's a dish you can't stop thinking about and want to make at home, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Your wish may end up on the blog, along with the actual recipe from the chef.
Originally created by local bar star Carlos Yturria, this delicious cocktail has become a summer classic over the past 7 years at Range. And with the late tomato harvest, the city’s produce is still at its peak—as is the sippability of this earthy-sweet drink.
1 1/2 ounces Distillery 209 gin
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce agave syrup (one part agave nectar dissolved in one part water)
3-5 Sungold tomatoes
Pinch of kosher salt
1. Muddle the tomatoes with the salt and lemon juice.
2. Combine with gin and agave in a shaker, then shake vigorously with ice.
3. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a sungold tomato on the rim.
