I have become a devotee of the syrups from LiberCo and that’s exactly where this recipe comes from! While LiberCo has a diverse assortment of syrups, the Blood Orange Cordial Syrup is something special — here, I’ve made a point to marry it with Mathilde Framboise - a pure raspberry Liqueur. A few days after making this cocktail for my wife (no surprise, a double which she added to HER private recipe book!!), we were invited for a casual nosh with neighbors Ruth & Pam and their spouses — amongst other things, we brought a pitcher of this cocktail with 4 massive ice cubes...soon thereafter, only those cubes were all that remained.
3/4 oz LiberCo Blood Orange Cordial
1 1/2 oz Tequila Blanco
1/2 oz Mathilde Framboise (raspberry)
1/2 oz Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
Cocktail Garnish Co Dehydrated Lemon Slice
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
Double strain over fresh ice into a chilled high ball glass.
Garnish with a Cocktail Garnish Co Dehydrated Lemon Slice and a tall-enough SurfSideSips Straw (the taller the glass the better, so if you need a taller straw, each out to Andrew and he’ll make one as tall as you need!).
