Justin Bolotnik's Ticoz Sunrise

Yesterday we met Justin Bolotnik, the man who's tended bar in several foreign lands, once got a $1,000 tip and spent a night with George Clooney at the titty bar. Today he shares with us the recipe for the Ticoz Sunrise, a drink that isn't on the Ticoz menu yet, but soon will be.

"I actually have a huge recipe book at home of stuff I've created, and this one I created for Ticoz," Bolotnik says. "It's something unique, something different that people can sip and go, 'Wow, that's something I've never had before.' I wanted to call it the Dirty Porno or something because it uses the X-Rated liqueur, but this is a family restaurant at the end of the day."

The ingredients:
1.5 oz. X-Rated Fusion liqueur
1 oz. Grey Goose vodka
½ oz. lime juice
¼ oz. Chambord
Splash pineapple juice
Dried mango slice, lime cherry and Maraschino cherry

How to make it:
Combine X-Rated, vodka, lime juice and pineapple juice in an ice-filled shaker. Shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Add Chambord for that tiered, sunset look. Garnish with dried mango, lime cherry and Maraschino cherry. Enjoy.
