    *To make the Green Bloody Mary mix, puree in a blender:

  • 3 tomatillos, husked, washed, and cored
  • 2 medium green tomatoes
  • Juice from 2 limes (about 2 oz)
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Instructions

    Apply lime juice to half the rim of a Collins glass; rim the glass with Sal de Gusano (or Margarita salt, to your taste). Fill the glass with ice. Add Tequila, Aquavit, Green Mary Mix, and Marvel Bitters. Garnish with a bouquet of fresh Cilantro, half of an Orange wheel, and a cocktail onion if desired.

    Hasty Tasty cooks recipes from scratch using entirely wood-fired heat, with cocktails that cheekily incorporate kitchen flavors. The result is refined flavors served in an contemporary diner-like space.
