One Fearlful Yellow Eye (Tequila)

In keeping with my recent tradition of naming my new tequila cocktails after the 21 novels in the Travis McGee series by American author John D. MacDonald.  I have named this cocktail after the eighth book in the series, One Fearful Yellow Eye. I have always liked the Travis McGee novels, and I believe that most of the titles for these novels make great names for cocktails.

One Fearful Yellow Eye

1 oz Anejo Tequila
1/2 oz Galliano
1/2 oz Cointreau
Orange and Pineapple Juice
Squeeze of Lime

In a metal Shaker filled with ice add the Tequila, the Galliano and the Cointreau
Add equal parts of Orange and Pineapple juice (about 3 oz total)
Shake until the sides of the metal shaker frosts.
Strain into a tall highball glass
Garnish with a squeeze of lime
