Ingredients

  • Ingredients for the drink:
  • ¼ cup Hypnotiq Original Liqueur
  • 2 teaspoons white cranberry juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ½ teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ½ teaspoon agave nectar honey or simple syrup
  • circle of orange or lemon peel opt.
  • Ingredients for the rim:
  • 1 Lime - zest
  • 1 Orange - zest
  • Coarse sugar
  • Coarse salt or margarita salt

Instructions

  1. Directions to rim the glass:
  2. Combine all rim ingredients and mix well. It works well to rub the ingredients together using your fingers. This infuses the zest oils into the salt and sugar.
  3. Rub the glass rim with a slice of lime or orange, turn the glass upside down and dip the rim in the lime & orange zest/sugar/salt mixture.
  4. Set the glass upright to let dry while preparing the drink.
  5. To prepare the cocktail:
  6. Fill a drink shaker 1/2-3/4 full with ice.
  7. Pour all drink ingredients over the ice in the shaker.
  8. Cover tightly then shake at least 30 seconds until the drink is ice cold.
  9. Pour the cold drink into the salt/sugar/zest rimmed glasses and serve immediately.
  10. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you want to and just for fun, cut a thin, small circle of orange or lemon peel off the fruit and float it in the cocktail. Be careful just to get the outer peel. It is reminiscent of the midday sun in a summer sky.
