It's finally Friday--and you know what that means? It's time to take a breather before the hectic weekend begins. While summer vacations are coming to an end, take a minute to enjoy the final days--with this week's mom-inspired cocktail. Presenting, the Aqua Pearl...
3/4 cup soursop (guanabana) juice* or pineapple juice
6 tablespoons gin
4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons simple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons Blue Curaçao liqueur
4 dashes of Angostura Bitters ice cubes
2 unsprayed purple orchids (optional)
Mix the first six ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice. Cover and shake well. Strain into two daiquiri or martini glasses. Garnish each with an orchid--if desired--and breathe in the Caribbean.
*Soursop (guanabana) juice is similar to pineapple juice and is available at Latin markets nationwide.
