The cookie cutter

Mercadito, Chicago

Smoky flavors, tea and beer all are trendy components of cocktails these days. This drink, created by beverage consulting team The Tippling Bros., combines all three.

They start by infusing reposado tequila with gingerbread-flavored rooibos tea. Next, they shake three parts of that combination with one part each of dry orange Curaçao and orange juice, and half a part of lemon juice.

They then pour that into a glass rimmed with bourbon-smoked sugar and fill the rest of the glass with Mexican lager.

The drink is priced at $11.
