High Ground

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, we've paired the dusty, herbal profile of Fred Jerbis Vermut 25 with the resinous aromatics of Tequila Reposado. The resulting cocktail is a portrait of the arid scrub lands just before a storm: a heady combination of desert herbs, sandstone, and rainwater.


  • 1 oz Fred Jerbis Vermut 25
  • 1 oz Tequila Reposado
  • ⅛ oz pastis (we recommend Ricard)
  • 2 dashes Artemisia Karela bitters
  • Sprig of spearmint, as garnish


  1. Combine everything in a shaker with ice and stir gently. 
  2. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with the spearmint.
