Shaken not stirred: Magellan’s Cocktail List – Magnificently Mesmorizing Margherita!

When we were staying at the beautiful Viceroy Riviera Maya, Riviera Maya, Mexico, recently, soaking in the tranquillity of the ancient and primitive Mayan tropical forest, we came under the resort’s spell and before we knew it, we were jumping behind the bar, mixing up a few devilishly delicious cocktails of our own!

The memories of that night and the names of our creations are a little blurry, but rest assured, our intrepid reporter Melanie recalls they were delicious!   Here’s the lovely Nick Bateman‘s own take on a classic – Magnificently Mesmorizing Margherita!  Nick – you have another career awaiting you as a cool barkeep!  Chin chin.

All you need is:

60 ml Silver Tequila

15 ml Sour Orange Juice

30 ml Cranberry Juice

30 ml Pomegranate Liqueur

5 ml Simple Sugar Syrup

Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add ice and shake well. Double strain and serve in a chilled Martini Glass.

PS – the beautiful handmade glasses are available for sale at the Viceroy Riviera Maya’s boutique and rest assured, there are highly qualified bartenders there to make your own drinks for you if you prefer to watch the experts at work!
