The Toucan & The Lion's Crimson & Clover

The drink: Crimson & Clover

The bar: The Toucan & the Lion (342 East 6th Street, 212-275-8989)

The price: $12

The ingredients: Tequila, lime juice, fresh muddled raspberries, green peppercorn simple syrup

The buzz: The fanciful drink menu at The Toucan & the Lion, a new gastropub in the East Village with an Asian flare, boasts tropical ingredients like Kaffir ginger-infused rum, fresh coconut water, and house-made pineapple shrub. But the bar's greatest concoction is a green peppercorn simple syrup, which gives the Crimson & Clover a complex spiciness that plays off the drink's sweet muddled raspberries and splash of sour lime juice to perfection. It's not exactly a seasonal drink, but it's definitely what you need be sipping on in these last days of winter, while you're dreaming of warmer weather to come.
