Hemingway Daiquiri Inspired En Vogue
En Vogue – recipe by Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist
2 ounces Camarena Tequila Silver
1 ounce Lime Juice
1/4 ounce Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
3/4 ounce Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
1/4 to 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup – according to preference
2 dashes Orange Bitters
Lime Wheel & Maraschino Cherry Garnish
Place all liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with skewered lime and cherry.
1/4 ounce of simple syrup renders a slightly tart cocktail with grapefruit and cherry more pronounced. 1/2 ounce of simple syrup sweetens the deal for more crowd pleasing cocktail while maintaining refreshing tartness.
