Tequila is having a moment and every bartender is bringing his or her unique spin to the Jaliscan-born delicacy. To cool down the steamy Miami nights with something sweet and spicy, complete with a good time had by all, head to Wynwood’s Pilo’s Tequila Garden and order the signature Pilo Rita. “The Pilo Rita is inspired by simply eating mango with chile and lime,” says Pilo’s Tequila Garden Beverage Director Luciana Rankins. “The chiles we use to make the chile syrup is a Morita chile, which gives the drink a smoky heat. Combined together, you get the sweetness of the mango with just the right smoky heat of the Morita. It’s given a couple of shakes and poured into a glass with the rim beautifully coated in Tajin. To complete the drink, lay a dried lime wheel on top.” 158 NW 24th St., Miami, @pilostequilagarden
