  • Missed summer? Have it by the glass in the Jalisco Cobbler.

We'll admit that we're cocktail nerds--er, connoisseurs--and while we readily enjoy nuanced and complex cocktails, we most appreciate the kinds of drinks that find the balance of accessibility with an interesting twist. Joel Teitelbaum's Jalisco Cobbler ($12) at the newly renovated Starlight Room is that kind of drink.

By building on the classic cobbler (a traditional mixture of alcohol, sugar, and fruit) and adding a lightly spiced homemade black pepper syrup, it adds tingle to the palate without numbing it. The finale of fresh strawberries get crushed then mixed with a reposado tequila, lime, bitters, and the black pepper syrup, that tastes like the last lingering moments of Indian summer.
