Fuschia Mini Skirt
About this Recipe
The inspiration for this drink came from a recipe shared with me by my friend’s mom. Of course, I had to spruce it up a little to make it my own.
I was dazzled by the color of the syrup. With such a small amount of ingredients, the drink didn’t quite fill a normal-sized glass, hence the name. Now, let’s get to the recipe.
- 1.5 oz Cazadores Reposado Tequila
- 0.75 oz Blueberry Mint Simple Syrup (recipe below)
- 0.5 oz Lime Juice
- 0.5 oz Cointreau
- 3 dashes Scrappy’s Orange Bitters
- 1 cup sugar
- 5-6 mint leaves
- 1 handful of fresh blueberries
- 1 cup water
Add blueberries and mint leaves to 1 cup of water in a pot and bring to a simmer. Add the sugar and simmer for approximately 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the syrup cool to room temperature. Use a strainer to pour into your srup container.
Shake all the ingredients with in a shaker with ice. Pour into a glass with a large ice cube, and enjoy. Don’t forget to salt the rim and garnish with blueberries and mint leaves!
