Be a Devil

  • Tequila - 1 1/3 oz
  • Cranberry Juice - 2/3 oz
  • Lime Juice - 2/3 oz
  • Rich Syrup - 1 tsp
  • Egg White - 1
  • Shake everything with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

One of the few modern cocktails added by Peter Dorelli to the updated The Savoy Cocktail Book. This drink really shows how well tequila and cranberry mix together. The original recipe didn’t include any sweetener, which I believe would be far too tart for anyone to handle, unless the cranberry “juice” they are using is very, very sweet; so I added a teaspoon of rich simple syrup (2:1).

The Bartender
  • Phia:Stay Daddy! *wraps arms around my head*
  • Daddy:But I have to go to work. *prying arms off head*
  • Phia:No!!! *gets out of bed* I want to go to work too!
  • Daddy:You want to have to get up every day and go to work even when you don't want to?
  • Phia:No. I want to have a lemonade stand.
  • Daddy:Well, that's a good job for a kid, I guess, but maybe not too good for winter. That's more of a summer job.
  • Phia:Well, I do like pretending to have a bar and serving adult drinks that are really just made of juice.
  • Daddy:Oh, you want to be a bartender then.
  • Phia:What's a bartender?
  • Daddy:Someone who tends a bar; they make and serve drinks.
  • Phia:Oh! *heads downstairs to get to work*
