Today is National Tequila Day, and Stratus Lounge thinks the best way to celebrate is with Philly inspired cocktail in hand – on a rooftop of course.
The Spicy Jawn ($14) combines heat from serrano infused tequila with a touch of sweetness from melon syrup, rounded out with sour lime juice. Here is the recipe below:

Infused Tequila Recipe
For every 1 liter bottle of blanco tequila, 6 serrano peppers are sliced and allowed to infuse into the tequila in a separate container for 48 hours at room temperature. After infusion time is complete, the strain off peppers and bottle. Must be kept cold.
