Cocktail

It’s a Royal Wedding!

.75 oz. Tanqueray
.5 oz. maraschino liqueur
.5 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 bar spoon blue Curacao
Shake all ingredients (except blue Curacao) vigorously and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Slowly pour blue Curacao down the inside of the glass to sit at the bottom.

Alcohol Content: .535

Seems like everyone is jumping on the bandwagon (and me too by reposting these) as the Royal Wedding edges closer in London. Gentleman bartender, Bon Vivant and Tanqueray roving man, Angus Winchester has pulled together these recipes to help all and sundry celebrate the happy day.

The Colour Me Royal (English spelling, of course) is a lovely little riff on the Aviation Cocktail, with the striking addition of Blue Curacao to liven things up. I think it might be enough to get even the most staunch, pinko, lefty, republican, Cachaca ambassador  excited.

Three more after the jump…

.75 oz. Tanqueray
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup
3 chunks fresh pineapple
1 small slice fresh ginger
