Lounge Chair Afternoon
It's no secret that tequila and port go together like, well, tequila and lime. But in the hands of a skilled mixologist, you can elevate the combination to new levels of deliciousness.
The Lounge Chair Afternoon was created by Lulu Martinez of Liquid Productions in Aston, Pennsylvania. This drink combines pink port with añejo tequila, grapefruit and lemon juices, and tarragon simple syrup. The result is a delicious botanical sipper that's perfect for enjoying in the sunshine.
The pink port provides a lovely base for the drink, while the grapefruit and lemon juices add a touch of tartness. The tarragon simple syrup rounds out the flavor with a light herbal hint.
So go ahead and pour yourself a glass of this lovely cocktail. You'll be sure to enjoy it!
Making tarragon syrup is easier than you think! Simply bring sugar and water to boil in a small pan, then simmer for one minute.
Remove from heat and add leaves of picked tarragons which will steep until needed; plus 15 more minutes before straining into fridge bottle with lid.
Store securely after filtering out any debris.
Add the pink port, añejo tequila, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, and tarragon simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled.
Double-strain into a double Old Fashioned glass over fresh ice.
Garnish with half of a grapefruit wheel.
