Sonambula

Ivy Mix, Leyenda | Brooklyn

First developed when Ivy Mix was working at Brooklyn’s Fort Defiance, the Sonambula followed her to Clover Club, ultimately becoming a permanent fixture on the Leyenda menu. To a base of jalapeño-infused tequila, mole and Peychaud’s bitters add an elevated brightness, drawing out the nuanced notes of the chamomile tea.

  • 2 dashes mole bitters, preferably Bittermens
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
