Avery Bar at The Ritz-Carlton, Boston is ready to welcome summer with a new tequila-based cocktail called ‘Pretty in Pink."  It's the perfect blend of refreshing and fruity with a hint of sour zest and garnish. This is the kind of cocktail you enjoy after an evening summer stroll through Boston Common, or sip after a day of shopping with friends on Newbury Street.  Sterling Jackson who tends bar here shares the recipe:

Avery Bar, located in the lobby of the The Ritz-Carlton, Boston, boasts a Mad Men-like vibe with sumptuous leather couches, an elevated marble fireplace, private alcoves for intimate gatherings, and a glamorous horseshoe bar topped with a stunning Murano glass chandelier.  Sterling Jackson, a former pastry chef at the hotel, approaches the art of cocktail making with the precision and exact measurements that she used in the pastry kitchen.
