Tequila Cocktails for Your Holiday Party

by Katja Presnal joulukuu 22, 2010

Tequila ei noin suoralta kädeltä tunnu jouluisalta, mutta ohessa muutama joulun juhliin sopiva cocktail, jotka opin aikoinaan New Yorkissa julkkis-kokilta Marcela Valladolidilta.

 

Lämmin talvi margarita  * suosittelen *

Just täydellinen kylmän päivän päätteeseen tai mukavan illan alkuun. Tämä pitäisi olla jokaisessa laskettelukeskuksessa saatavana.

Ainesosat:
8 dl omenamehua
1 kanelitanko
2 rkl sokeria
4 shotti lasillista tequilaa

4 dl kuivattuja hedelmiä kuten aprikooseja, omenoita, rusinoita, luumuja (glögi tarpeet sopii hyvin)

Kuumenna omenamehu ja kaneli kattilassa, kun se kiehuu, laita levy pienemmälle ja lisää sokeri. Anna hiljalleen sokerin sulaa, noin 10 min. Poista kanelitanko ja lisää tequila. Tarjoa kuivattujen hedelmien kanssa glögin tapaan.

 

PUOLUKKA MARGARITA

Ingredients for Cranberry Puree
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, about 4 oranges
1 cup sugar
1 16 ounce package of fresh cranberries

In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the sugar in the orange juice. Add the cranberries and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Set aside and let it cool. Blend cranberries in a blender, then strain to make the puree

Ingredients for 1 drink

1 ½ ounces of Sauza Tequila
½ ounce of Grand Marnier
2 ounces of cranberry puree

In a shaker add crushed ice, 1 1/2 ounces of tequila, 1/2 ounce of Grand Marnier, 2 ounces of cranberry puree and shake to mix. Pour drink into a sugar rimmed martini glass. Add a cranberry swizzle stick for garnish.

Ingredients for Cranberry Swizzle Sticks

10 skewer sticks
1 16 ounce package of fresh cranberries
1 cup of light Karo syrup
1 cup of granulated sugar

Skewer several cranberries onto 10 skewer sticks but leave enough skewer exposed on one end. Lightly brush each cranberry skewer with Karo syrup and then sprinkle granulated sugar over the cranberry skewers. Place the cranberry swizzle sticks on wax paper and place in the freezer to set.
