October 29, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
Latin Lover (Charles Schumman, 1984)
1/4 to 3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. Rose’s lime juice
1 1/4 to 2 oz. pineapple juice
3/4 oz. tequila
Shake well with crushed ice in a shaker. Strain into a large highball glass over crushed ice and add pineapple.
Leblon cachaça, Hornitos tequila. YUM! This cocktail SO needs a little paper umbrella sticking out of the top! I continue to be enchanted by pineapple juice in combination with just about anything. The Leblon is a little smoky, but not a lot of smoke comes through. The effect is more like a roasted or slightly grilled cocktail. The tequila’s usual funk is subdued as well.
