Juan Ho Royale
The Juan Ho Royale is a modern classic from master mixologist Martin Cate. It looks absolutely gorgeous, with its bubbly, glittering sea-blue color, but it’s also a genuinely delicious tequila cocktail in its own right. It’s quite possibly the ideal blue cocktail.
If you don’t have blue curaçao on hand, you can use orange curaçao (or triple sec, or orange shrubb), with a drop or two of blue food dye added.
- 2 parts Sparkling white wine
- 1½ parts Blanco tequila
- ½ part Blue curaçao or Orange curaçao or Shrubb or Triple sec
- ½ part Falernum liqueur
- ¾ part Lime juice
- ½ part Orgeat
Start by pouring the sparkling wine into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Shake the remaining ingredients with ice and strain into the glass.
