What She's Having at Lux

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: What She's Having at Lux. 

If you can't pick your poison at Lux, just order What She's Having

The ultra-hip coffee shop/bar/restaurant on Central Avenue is the place to see/be seen/hide from every other hipster who's looking to see/be seen/hide. 

If you're a fan of tequila, What She's Having is a cool solution that'll enable you to seamlessly call an order to the bartender. (And if you're feeling adventurous, just ask to his notebook full of Lux-original cocktails, organized by liquor.) 

Check out the recipe after the jump ... 


- 2 ounces of blanco tequila (Lux uses Casa Noble)
- 1 ounce elderflower
- 1 ounce fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice

- Mix ingredients in a shaker (for 15 to 20 seconds). 
- Shave a thin slice of orange peel, squeeze over drink, and lightly run around rim. 
- Enjoy/be seen/hide.
