Were back with another Batman book! Nearly every member of the rogue’s gallery gets involved in this week’s book: Hush, written by Jeph Loeb, with amazing art by Jim Lee.

  • 1-3 Slices of Jalapeño
  • 3 Slices Cucumber
  • 3-4 Lime Wedges

  • 1 oz Simple Syrup
  • Salt
  • Rim with Old Bay

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a shaker, muddle lime wedges, jalapeños slices, cucumber slices, and simple syrup.
  • Add ice, tequila, and cointreau to shaker.
  • Shake for 20-30 seconds.
  • Pour salt onto a small plate.
  • Run a lime wedge around the rim of the martini glass.
  • Dip martini glass into the salt, you can use sugar here too if you prefer!
