Cholo Fresco

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Hans Hilburg • El Pisquerito; Cuzco, Peru
At this pisco-themed bar, Hilburg uses local slang to name his cocktails. Cholo fresco means "somebody who is fresh in every sense," he says. "Light, saucy, naughty, audacious . . . And what's fresher than cucumber, melon, mint and lime?"
