Recipe: Pluto’s Revenge

The name’s a touch of an inside joke, but we’ve grown to like this variant on the old Barbarella cocktail. My tweak of adding blue curaçao as a drizzle does add some additional citrus notes, but more than that, makes for a fairly exotic looking drink, befitting the frozen cold of the outer limits of our solar system.

Pluto’s Revenge

2 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. sambuca
1 tsp. Bols Blue Curaçao

Combine Cointreau and sambuca.
Shake very vigorously with ice until very cold.
Strain coarsely into a cocktail glass.
(you want small flecks of ice to be floating in an icy sea)
Drizzle blue curaçao for visual interest.
Serve promptly.

Strain properly, or double-strain, over an ice ball into an old fashioned glass.
Then drizzle blue curaçao for visual interest.
