Not to be confused with the “Nick at Night” I posted a week ago, this was inspired by “The Nick”. With a touch of holiday festoon, this is one certain to be enjoyed by holiday guests who visit after they’ve provided two negative test results, a temperature check upon entry into your foyer followed by instructions to not touch anything without the gloves you’ve provided and when possible to practice shallow breathing behind a N95 mask and face shield which only a welder would wear. Otherwise, enjoy.
2 oz 1800 Reposado Tequila
1 1/2 Sweet & Sour Mix
3/4 oz Oak City Amaretto (I’m now empty!)
1/4 oz Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
3 Large Cranberries (muddling)
2 Sugared Cranberries (garnish)
Lime Wheel (garnish)
Add the tequila and 3 Cranberries to a cocktail shaker and muddle.
Add the remaining ingredients into the shaker along with ice.
Shake vigorously until well chilled and double strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a thin lime wheel and 2 sugared Cranberries on an appropriately themed cocktail pick.
