Rising Sun

June 22, 2011 (Day 86) — Rising Sun

There is a house in New Orleans/That’s called the Rising Sun/And it’s been the ruin/Of many a poor boy/And God, I know I’m one — The Eagles, Hotel California

Here’s a drink that could make you forget about time itself.

I see what you did there...

Rising Sun

  • 1.5 oz brandy
  • .5 oz maraschino liqueur
  • .5 oz pineapple juice
  • .5 oz orange curacao liqueur
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • lemon peel for garnish

Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with crushed ice, shake well and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

A little bit twangy from the citrus, a little bit heavy from the brandy, and a little bit earthy from the maraschino.
