    Ingredients for A Cajun Piñata

    • 6 ounces grapefruit juice
    • 4 ounces silver tequila
    • 2 ounces lime juice
    • 2 ounces Cointreau may substitute triple sec or Harlequin
    • 3 teaspoons agave nectar
    • a splash cranberry juice
    • ice
    • cranberries fresh

    Instructions

    The Method

    • To a cocktail shaker, add all of the ingredients except the cranberry juice and fresh cranberries.
    • Shake well, but not past 35 seconds. Ice begins to break down at 35 seconds and compromises the alcohol.
    • Pour a splash of cranberry juice and a few fresh cranberries into a pretty glass. Pour the libation over the cranberry juice. Serve immediately.
