Texas Sunset


If you're looking for a new drink to try with your Southwest meals instead of the same old margarita, I think you'll like this one!  The grenadine is added last so it sinks to the bottom and really does look like the colors of a sunset.  This drink is one of the specialties at Bonnell's Fine Texas Cuisine, Fort Worth, Texas.

For ONE drink:

2 1/2 oz. Bacardi Limon
1 oz. Gran Marnier
1/2 oz. Tequila
1/2 oz. Cranberry Juice
3/4 oz. grenadine

Mix all ingredients except for grenadine in a bar shaker with one scoop of ice and shake well to chill.  Strain well, and pour into a chilled martini glass.  Pour the grenadine in last to achieve that "perfect sunset" look.  Garnish with a wedge of lemon.
