New York has a new high-end Mexican American cocktail bar in the East Village called SUPERBUENO.
Founded by Greg Boehm from Cocktail Kingdom and acclaimed bartender and hospitality industry powerhouse Ignacio “Nacho” Jimenez (who you might remember from the award-winning bar Ghost Donkey).
One of the cocktail highlights from the bar is a drink called the Nogada Fizz, which is a riff on a Gin Fizz, and Nacho is making the drink for us to show you how it is done.
A refreshing, smokey play on Mexico’s iconic Chiles en Nogada, the drink mixes poblano pepper-infused Gin, Maraschino, green apple, lemon juice, egg white, and soda.
Pushing the boundaries and expectations of what Mexican cocktail culture can be, SUPERBUENO offers a carefully crafted menu that features ten cocktails (alongside non-alcoholic serves) that highlight noteworthy Mexican flavours and spirits.
