Miami Springs Sunset


Miami Springs, Florida is a hidden jewel tucked inside of the busy metropolitan city of Miami. One step inside of this gorgeous small town, and all of your worries fade away. That's why we decided to name this drink 'Miami Springs Sunset.' You are sure to relax as you sip this refreshing, no-fuss cocktail. Its even better if you are watching the beautiful sunset from our front porch! Enjoy!

(Makes about 2 cocktails)

Ingredients:
1 cup of pineapple juice
1/2 cup of Bacardi Limon
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of grenadine
1/4 cup of sugar

Kitchen Essentials:
Measuring cups and spoons
Knife
Cutting board
Strainer
Lowball glass or short tumbler
Pitcher (if making for a large crowd)
2 small plates
Cocktail glasses

Prep:
Begin by garnishing the cocktail glasses with a sugar rim. Add sugar to one plate and lemon juice to another. Dip the edge of the glass in the lemon juice first and then in the sugar. This can be done up to a few hours prior to serving the cocktail. We recommend doing this if you are having people over.

Directions:
Combine the pineapple juice, Bacardi Limon, and lemon juice in a pitcher. Stir and place in the fridge until ready to serve. Pour the mixture in the sugar rimmed glass. Slowly add the grenadine, letting it sink to the bottom of the glass. DO NOT mix. Cut some lemon slices and place on the side of the glass.

Isn't this a gorgeous drink? We think so! Enjoy!

  3. I loved living in Miami! I was in Aventura for 4 years, but loved Coconut Grove, Miami Shores, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami Springs. Miss the energy. Your drink definitely captures the essence of your city!
