High Five Spirits' Mi Senorita Vodka Rita

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | June 9, 2018

We swear, it’s not only High Five Spirits’ gorgeous presentation of its Mi Senorita Vodka Rita that had us swooning. (But seriously, who wouldn’t fall hard for a chilled copper vessel cut in the shape of an upside-down pineapple and packed with thick rings of citrus, High Five’s house-infused jalapeno-pineapple vodka, house-made triple sec, and a splash of fresh OJ? Anyone? Anyone?) To sip this tropical affair, though, feels a bit like an illicit affair — perhaps that’s because the recipe is said to have been lifted from el criminal numero uno himself, el Chapo. Whatever its source, we care most for its finish: truly fresh and fruity, a wee bit spicy, and as one devoted reviewer described, “like a Mexican fiesta in my mouth.” $13, High Five Spirit, 312 Howard St., Petoskey. (231) 881-9881, gypsyvodka.com.
