Pok Pok Ny's Hunny Recipe

Grapefruit, tequila and lime get a honey-vinegar boost in this citrus-forward cocktail from Pok Pok Ny. Pok Pok's Alex Mirkin uses Sauza Gold as the base of this drink, but we like to substitute any 100% agave reposado tequila. For a smokier cocktail, try using mezcal instead.

Note: Som Honey drinking vinegar is available for purchase online and at retailers around the country, including all Pok Pok locations.
