The cocktail is a play on the classic "Singapore Sling." Cabo San Lucas seemed an appropriately exotic and tropical place to reference. This recipe is courtesy of 1800 Tequila

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Ounce tequila
  • 2 1/2 Ounces pineapple juice
  • 1/2 Ounce Bénédictine
  • 1/2 Ounce lime juice
  • 3/4 Ounces cherry brandy

Directions

Combine all except cherry brandy in a cocktail shaker and shake well with ice. Strain into a hurricane or tiki glass filled with ice. Drizzle the cherry brandy over the top of the drink and garnish with a pineapple leaf.

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
