My wife and I have gotten into the habit of trying a new drink on weekends, something completely different from the classic gin martini I enjoy, and her favorite chocolate martini. My wife chose this for this week’s pick but honestly, when I looked at the ingredients I was a bit skeptical that this would come together and taste better than sweet swamp water. Boy was I surprised! It’s hard to describe how the flavors blend other than to say it was well-balanced and refreshing. No one of the relatively different liquors included in this drink dominated the other. Other than using Grand Marnier instead of Triple Sec I followed the recipe as written. The only flavor that really stands out is the pineapple, and even that is pleasantly subtle and not too sweet. This is a refreshing, not boozy, drink that can be enjoyed for just about any occasion. But just a warning – depending on whether or not you really do stay up until dawn drinking this, one serving was plenty for the two of us!
Very good. I used vanilla vodka because that was all I had and squeezed the juice from the lime wedge into my drink. Took the edge off.
This is absolutely wonderful. A nice, clean refreshing flavor. Great balance, and use of all ingredients.
