I don’t know about you, but I love to enjoy a fruity cocktail every now and then. I’m not a beer fan and wine burns my insides, but a fruity mixed drink seems to be just right. I love trying new ones when I go out for dinner, and then trying to replicate them at home where it’s a lot cheaper!
One of my favorites I tried was at Colton’s Steakhouse, called the Wild West Fling. It was really tasty (so good you have to be careful not to slurp it down), plus it looked pretty because there were different layers to it. I looked up the recipe online, but for some reason, I could barely find any information about it. So I thought I better get the recipe out there for others to try too! Trust me, you’ll love it.
Midori Melon Liquor
Put 1 oz of the Midori liquor in a cocktail glass. Next, pour in 1 oz of peach schnapps.
If you want to produce separate layers, you need to use a big spoon for the next part. It’s a little tricky, but it makes a pretty drink!
Now you will want to add equal amounts of the juices to your liking. Put the back of the spoon up against the side of the glass. Slowly pour the pineapple juice down the side of the glass against the spoon. Because of the differences in density, the pineapple juice will sit on top of the alcohol layer and not mix.
Next, do the same thing with the cranberry juice. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to get the cranberry juice to sit on top of the pineapple juice (mine mixed in), but maybe you can! It may depend on the type of juice you get – haven’t figured it out quite yet.
Finally, add a pretty straw and enjoy!! You may want to mix the layers after all is said and done anyway because it tastes better that way! Drink responsibly. :o)
