The Cocktail Hour: The Lilypad

It's been a dreadfully long week for me, the kind of week that makes you breathe a little sigh of relief when you look up and realize it is finally Friday. A few moments to unwind are a must this evening and I am sure that the little shot of tequila in this crimson cocktail couldn't hurt!  Plus with a pretty little name like this, how could I resist?!

The Lilypad

1 1/2 oz. Milagro Silver Tequila
1/2 oz. Lillet Blanc
1/2 oz. Lillet Rouge
1 1/2 oz. apple juice
1/4 oz. agave nectar
1/4 oz. fresh lime juice
Combine ingredients and shake well. Serve up in a cocktail glass. Garnish with a blood orange wheel and serve.
Makes 1 serving
