This cocktail recipe was created by Rensel Cabrera, the bar manager at The Sylvester in Miami Florida. According to him, he calls this cocktail the 25/8 (venticinco-ocho), because “drinking it 24/7 still wouldn’t be enough!”


  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 3/4 oz Agave Syrup
  • 1 Strawberry
  • 1 Bunch cilantro 
  • 2 Cracks of fresh black pepper
  • Garnish: Splash of Topo Chico


Start by muddling 1 whole strawberry and 1 bunch of cilantro in mixing glass. Add agave, lime, and tequila into mixing glass. Give it a quick stir for 5–8 seconds. Add a splash of Topo Chico and strain into highball class with fresh ice. Garnish with cilantro, lime wheel, and fresh cracked black pepper on top. Tip: You can substitute the strawberry for any other berry or even some yellow or orange bell peppers.
