Cocktail Hour: The Ruffled Pelican

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 9, 2016

This cocktail was inspired by one of my favourite gin drinks, the Darby. The Darby is a wonderful cocktail which mixes grapefruit and lime with dry gin. It is easy to mix, and it is sure to please even the most discriminating of palates.

Grapefruit and lime mix as easily with agave as they do with juniper, and so for this variation of the Darby I simply replaced the gin with a very nice Reposado Tequila from Dulce Vida. The result is very similar to the well-known Paloma albeit with much less soda.

Ruffled PelicanI call this cocktail, the Ruffled Pelican.

Ruffled Pelican

1 1/2 oz Dulce Vida Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
1/2 oz Sugar Syrup
Splash Soda

Pour the first three ingredients into a metal shaker with ice
Shake until the sides of the shaker are frosted
Strain into a suitable glass
Add a small splash of soda
Garnish with a slice of lime

Remember to enjoy my cocktail suggestions responsibly!
