Coward’s Way Out



  • 2 oz Tequila
  • ¾ oz Yellow Chartreuse
  • ¾ oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • ½ oz Agave Nectar
  • 6 – 1” squares of Yellow Bell Pepper

  • Add the tequila and pepper to a mixing glass. Muddle the pepper aggressively. Add the remaining ingredients, with ice, and stir to chill. Strain into a Margarita glass and garnish with a yellow bell pepper wedge.

We use yellow bell pepper and yellow chartreuse to make our Coward’s Way Out. The yellow chartreuse gives this flavorful margarita a delicate cowardly color while the yellow bell pepper imparts a smokiness that would have you believing we used a mezcal rather than a tequila. The yellow chartreuse, here, gives the cocktail a “zing” – similar to the brightness given by the Cointreau we typically use in our margaritas – and the yellow pepper imparts some sweet, vegetally, pepper notes. If your larder only holds a red bell pepper, check out our Sweet Bell Margarita. Cheers!
