Auntie Ox Cocktail

The famed mixologists at Tippling Bros. created a brunch-worth cocktail at Chicago restaurant Mercadito's. The Auntie Ox goes beyond your basic mimosa-coffee brunch routine with a green tea-infusion and passion fruit puree (and even a bit of a kick, thanks to guajillo chiles).

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.
