1 1/4 ounces fresh mango juice

3/4 ounces lime juice

1/2 ounces agave syrup

3 jalapeno wheels (two in the shaker, one for garnish, seeds removed if desired)

2 dashes Regans' Orange Bitters

Method

To make the Faye, simply muddle the ingredients listed here in a cocktail shaker, shake vigorously and strain into a classic coupette. Garnish with the remaining jalapeno slice and prepare for your close-up.
