41 Days of Drinks (day 16)
This is a very pretty drink that needs to carry a warning that fits such easy-to-imbibe concoctions: Count your drinks. Even though there is a lot of ice involved in it that will dilute it to some extent, it is potent.
It was created by Colleen Graham, a spirits writer and bartender, and is included in her excellent 2012 book "¡Hola Tequila!" (Sellers Publishing).
1½ fluid ounces blanco tequila
¾ fluid ounces blue curaçao
¾ fluid ounce pineapple juice
Dash of orange bitters
Pour the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, then strain into a frozen cocktail glass filled with cracked ice. Garnish with a pineapple flag or a single maraschino cherry.
