Romeo and Juliet…

Here’s a cocktail that would have warmed the hearts of the feuding Montagues and Capulets.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Patron Silver tequila
  • 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 oz. cherry or Chambord raspberry liquor
  • 2 oz. chilled peach juice
  • 3 maraschino cherries, garnish
  • Orange spiral, garnish

Preparation:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add tequila (or Absolut Apeach), Grand Marnier, cherry liquor and peach juice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and pour into a chilled fluted glass or large martini glass.

Place orange spiral on the lip of the glass so it drapes down the side.

For a fluted glass: drop a cherry into drink.

For a martini glass: skewer three cherries on a swizzle stick and lay across the lip.
