Blazing Vegas Sunrise
Recipe courtesy of Chef Doreen Fang
1 ½ ounces Tequila - Reposado
1 ½ ounces lime juice
2 teaspoons super fine sugar
4 ounces Kern’s Pineapple-Orange-Passion Fruit Nectar
3-4 slices of Habanero pepper
1 ounce Grenadine (approximately)
Pineapple chunks (garnish)
Maraschino cherries (garish)
Sliced Habanero pepper (garnish)
Shaker with strainer
Tooth pick/skewer for pineapple and cherries
Fill highball with ice and set aside.
Fill the shaker with ice, pour in the tequila, lime juice, sugar, pineapple-orange-passion fruit nectar, habanero slices, cover and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain and pour into the glass.
Add skewer of pineapple and cherry and finish with a slice of habanero pepper.
Note: If you would like this drink to be spicier, you can either infuse your tequila with the habanero, use a muddler and crush the pepper or finely mince the habanero and add it into the cocktail.
