Hump Day Cocktail From ShakeStir: The Del Rio

Hump Day Cocktail From ShakeStir: The Del Rio

The Del Rio.

Our friends over at ShakeStir have asked the nearly 2,000 (and growing) bartenders in their community to submit signature cocktail recipes for potential coverage on The Daily Meal. Each Wednesday, the drink that snags the most five-star ratings (according to his or her ShakeStir peers) will be featured on The Daily Meal — along with a recipe, photo, and link to the selected bartender's profile — as part of the new weekly "Hump Day" Cocktail series.

This week's winner comes from the legendary San Francisco bartender Josh Harris, the man behind some of the country's best bar programs at Quince, Wayfare Tavern, and more. (He's also the co-founder behind the Bon Vivants cocktail and spirits consulting company.) His creation is just in time for National Tequila Day: The Del Rio, made with Tequila Ocho Plata.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
