2.5 shots out of 5
Who's up for a poker night? Knowing I was going to make this cocktail tonight has made me in the mood for a poker night all day long! Put the kids to bed, have some friends over and play some poker, accompanied by some yummy cocktails of course!
Until I took the photo of the ingredients tonight, I had thought that tonight's cocktail was named because of the "Crown Royal" in it. Not until I looked through my lens to take that shot, did I realize that both the Crown Royal and the Chambord are alcohol royalty. If you notice on the Chambord bottle there's a little crown on it, so that makes them both royalty in my book.
I gave tonight's cocktail 2.5 shots out of 5. I didn't hate it, but I'm not a big fan of whiskey. Since this cocktail had a mixture of a couple different fruity sweet mixes in it, I was able to get past the whiskey and kind of enjoy the cocktail. I have to be honest, when I started making this cocktail and saw that there was a shot and a half of the Crown Royal it made me nervous, but honestly the rest of the ingredients off-set it enough (not entirely, but enough to not make you make faces) to allow me to drink it.
Here is the recipe for a Royal Flush:
- 1 1/2 shots Crown Royal
- 1 shot peach schnapps
- 1/2 shot Chambord
- 1 shot cranberry juice
In a highball glass, fill it 3/4 to the top with ice. Add your Crown Royal, peach schnapps, Chambord and cranberry juice. Stir up your cocktail really really well and enjoy.
