The Chiquita Pepita

Groove Korea (

We’re now in the thick of spring and with warm weather comes refreshing cocktails. Beautifully green in color, the Chiquita Pepita has an all around freshness with the cucumber infused tequila and verdita. The cucumber infusion nicely softens up the tequila to where it is quite pleasant to drink on its own (if you weren’t a fan of tequila to begin with). Verdita is a slightly sweet, slightly spicy blend of spearmint, cilantro, pineapple, and green chili pepper. Spring only comes once a year, but the Chiquita Pepita’s can certainly be had in twos or threes.

The Chiquita Pepita:

  • 1.5 oz. Cucumber Infused Tequila
  • .5 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1.5 oz. Verdita
  • .5 oz. Lime
  • .5 oz. Agave
  • Cucumber Ribbon (for garnish)
  • Chili Flake (for garnish)
