The Corcovado Cocktail

With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner here is a nice twist on the usual Margarita. It comes from a recipe found years ago in one cocktail book or another. The drink was tried and tested at the pool bar on Sanibel’s  Casa Ybel resort to rave reviews. It is a nice twist on the Gold Margarita, using Drambuie (Scotch and Honey Liqueur) instead of Grand Marnier with the addition of Blue Curacao giving the drink a beautiful aquamarine color. The recipe is as follows:

In a Shaker Glass Filled with Ice Add

  • 2 Ounces of Good Quality Gold Tequila
  • ½ Ounce Drambuie
  • ½ Ounce Blue Curacao
  • 3 Ounces of Sweet & Sour Mix

Shake Till it Hurts.  Serve on the rocks in your favorite glass .  The Drambuie adds spiciness to the cocktail while the Blue Curacao lends a hint of orange and the lovely aqua color.
