corn cocktail

This cocktail doesn’t actually taste much like corn, but rather uses the “milk” of the corn to offer up a pale yellow color and a creamy consistency. Hints of citrus and a good tequila are the only other things you’ll need for this summertime treat.

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Zest of 1/2 lime
1/2 cup fresh corn kernels
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce agave syrup
2 ounces tequila, or to taste

  1. Place salt, sugar, and lime zest on a plate and mix together. Rub rim of glass with cut lime and dip rim into salt/sugar/zest mixture, coating rim completely. Set aside.
  2. Muddle corn in bottom of a cocktail shaker until kernels are mashed and a milky liquid forms.
  3. Add lime and lemon juice, agave syrup, and tequila. Fill shaker with ice and shake until combined and chilled. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a martini glass and serve.

Makes 1 cocktail.
