Ezra Star was inspired to make her spicy mustard cocktail by one of her favorite childhood snacks. “I was kind of a bizarre kid and loved to put mustard on oranges,” says Star, general manager at Drink in Boston. “My favorite way to use orange is with Tequila, so it seemed like a perfect pairing.”

  • 1½ ounces blanco Tequila
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • ¾ ounce grenadine 
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • ¼ ounce Panda Mustard, or other hot mustard

Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled coupe glass.
