Looking for a tasty cocktail to serve on Valentine’s Day for a party or a romantic dinner for two? Try the Romeo and Juliet Cocktail. It starts with my favorite, Patron Silver tequila, and the mix of Grand Marnier, Chambord and peach juice is fabulous.
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
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice; add tequila (you can substitute 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. If you’re using a fluted glass, drop a cherry into the drink. For a martini glass, you can skewer three cherries on a swizzle stick and lay it across the lip.
