Thirsty Thursday: Saguaro Hotel's Summer Cocktail

Our friends at the Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale have us all figured out -- it is just way too hot to go outside. The only reason to go out would be to head to the Saguaro to hang out by one of their cool pools, or move inside to have John the Bartender take care of you.  Here's an excerpt from their e-newsletter sent out this week:

If the vampire lifestyle is your MO then head in to Old Town Whiskey for a craft cocktail in a sexy, dark bar. Ask John (our incredible bartender) to whip you up a De Riguer, my favorite summer cocktail. Or you can make it at home with this recipe that I managed to coerce out of him (and all I had to do was threaten to shave his sideburns off)!

• 1 ½ oz Bulliet Rye
• ½ oz lemon juice
• ¾ oz Aperol
• ½ oz honey syrup
• ¾ oz grapefruit juice

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker, shake and double strain into a martini or coupe glass, garnish with a mint leaf, enjoy.
