My Nantucket Red

with 7 comments

Came up with this cocktail hour offering – attempting to match the color newly acquired Nantucket Reds® from Murray’s.  Later this weekend I’ll put the kit on a model it all for ya!

The Nantucket Red

Here are the mixology instructions:

In a shaker half filled with ice

2 oz of your favorite vodka

2 oz of cranberry-pomegranate juice

1 oz of orange juice (not from concentrate)

Squeeze of a wedge of lime

Shake and pour into a nice crystal beverage glass or martini glass

Note:  This beverage is nice but a tad tart – some folks probably like it that way.  You might consider adding ½ oz. of simple syrup to take the bite off.

Simple Syrup

2 cups of water

2 cups of sugar

Heat to a boil and all sugar granules are dissolved and then let it cool.  Keeps in the refrigerator forever.

Putting it together

    • I think its actually better with the half shot of simple syrup. Go make yourself one!

  3. Looks really cool, it got pom so I think it’s really worth a try. 😉 Though I think cranberry-pomegranate juice is sweet enough, I’d probably skip the simple syrup. Anyway, really cool drink you got here, thanks for sharing. 🙂

  4. That’s a very ingenious idea. My pants usually match my drink AFTER a night of carousing… But, STARTING OUT coordinated never ocurred to me… You’re a pretty smart fella. Your blog has some beautiful photography. Saludos. Gringo Jack.
