When Las Vegas bartender Cory Mendonca added "Smile & enjoy!!" to his original cocktail recipe, he was not joking. You cannot help but grin when enjoying this lovely drink.
Mendonca has done a fine job in constructing this unique drink. It has also introduced me to a couple of ingredients, which are now on my favorite list.
The drink mixes a great citrus vodka with St. Germain and Cartron Grenade, a sweet and delicious pomegranate liqueur, then to finish it off he adds a fantastic strawberry-lime cider. It all comes together quite nicely and I encourage everyone to seek out the liqueur and cider and mix this one up, I doubt you will regret it.
- Combine the first 5 ingredients in cocktail shaker, add ice and shake hard.
- Strain into large coupe or martini glass while adding Cider to blend.
- Carve a long lime rind twist and lay over cocktail. Smile & enjoy!! :)
