Courtenay Greenleaf, Masa y Agave 

Courtenay Greenleaf, is the force behind Masa y Agave (in association with Rosa Mexicano) in New York. Her favorite springtime cocktail is her Yelapa Fizz, a lavender-scented, lightly effervescent highball. She tells us, "the drink's floral-forward scent epitomizes springtime for me. I use La Venenosa Maximiliana Raicilla (a tequila relative) as the base, combined with a bouquet of aromatic ingredients, including Cocchi Americano, fresh pineapple juice, and lavender syrup, and bitters.”
