Scott Morrison's mixologist friend Cyrus Keyhari created this recipe for Socialista, a trendy Havana-themed restaurant and nightclub in Manhattan's West Village. The name of this margarita-like cocktail means "the point of grapefruit," referring to Keyhari's belief that citrus-based cocktails have an affinity for spicy food.

  1. 1/2 cup sugar
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1/2 cinnamon stick, broken
  4. 3 whole cloves
  5. Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  6. Ice
  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  8. 2 tablespoons fresh grapefruit juice
  9. 1/4 cup silver tequila
  10. 1 cherry, for garnish (optional)
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, cinnamon stick, cloves and nutmeg. Bring to a simmer, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool, then strain.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the lime juice, grapefruit juice, tequila and 2 tablespoons of the spiced simple syrup. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Garnish with a cherry, if desired.
Make Ahead The spiced simple syrup can be strained and refrigerated for up to 1 week.
