It's the Thursday before Valentine's Day and I haven't posted Thirsty Thursday style in far too long! My "big plans" for the 14th include some snuggle time with my sweet Valentine of a daughter, but maybe you have a special dinner out, or in, on the horizon. Whether your Valentine is a friend or a beloved, here's a delicious sounding cocktail (with the most romantic of titles) for the main event:
The Romeo and Juliet Cocktail
*1 1/2 oz Patron Silver Tequila
*1/2 oz Grand Marnier
*1/4 oz Chambord or Raspberry Liquor
*2 oz chilled peach juice
*3 maraschino cherries (garnish)
*orange peel spiral (garnish)
Put ice into a cocktail shaker.
Pour all the liquid ingredients over the ice and shake.
Pour into martini glass.
Garnish with the orange peel and cherries and make pretty like the picture!
And, cross your fingers in hopes you meet the love of your life and your ending is happier than Romeo and Juliet's.
(insert smile and wink here.)
Happy Valentine's Day!
