Nightmare in Pink (Tequila Cocktail)

Nightmare in Pink

1 1/2 oz Blanco or Reposado Tequila
1/2 oz  Dry Vermouth
3/4 oz  Cranberry Juice
1/4 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 oz  Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Grenadine

(Splash of soda Optional)

Frozen Blueberries for Garnish

Add all the first six ingredients with ice into a metal shaker
Shake until the sides of the shaker frost
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with frozen blueberries


Note: Nightmare in Pink is the second of 21 novels in the Travis McGee series by American author John D. MacDonald. I have always liked the Travis McGee novels, and I have always believed that most of the titles for these novels would make great names for cocktails.
