Desert Sunrise

Day 141



Desert Sunrise
5 shots out of 5


Yummmmm!  This is another great "Desert" cocktail by Finest Call.  I am enjoying their cocktails so far.  My theory is that if you find a cocktail recipe on an alcohol companies website, then it's more or less going to be a good one, because they're not going to put a nasty cocktail on their site where they're promoting their brand.

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  This cocktail is very refreshing.  It's a good add to my summer time cocktails of Back Porch Breeze, Leeches and MCA.  This is a light cocktail and the peach schnapps adds a very yummy blend to the prickly pear syrup and orange juice.  If you want to enjoy a nice tasting cocktail but don't want all of the alcohol content, this is a good choice!

Here is the recipe for a Desert Sunrise:

  • 1 oz prickly pear syrup
  • 1.25 oz peach schnapps
  • 4 oz orange juice
This is a layered cocktail, so first you want to fill up a tall cocktail glass 3/4 of the way with crushed ice.  Pour your prickly pear syrup in first, then your peach schnapps, then your orange juice.  

Take a step back and admire your amazing layering job.  Then stir it up so that you can taste everything instead of just orange juice!
