Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week Jackalope Ranch brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Stars Go Blue at Cadillac Ranch.
(recipe after the jump)
1 oz. Seagram's Raspberry Rum
1/2 oz. Hiram Walker Blue Curacao
1/4 oz. Daily's Triple Sec
1/4 oz. Sweet and Sour
Splash of Sprite
Maraschino cherries to garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, curacao, triple sec and sweet and sour mix. Shake to combine and strain into a glass filled with ice. Float Sprite on top of the bright blue mixture and top with a couple of maraschino cherries.
Our advice: mix up a batch of the first four ingredients for your Independence Day BBQ and add Sprite and cherry garnish to order.
