Cocktail of the Month: Top Off the Morning

Posted by on March 3, 2010

March brings signs of spring: a few more birds singing, tulips blooming, and longer days. This month’s cocktail features flavors that are just as fresh as spring. It goes great with breakfast on the weekend; for a more potent treat, omit the lemon lime soda and serve in a martini glass.097Top Off the Morning

  • 1/3 c. citron vodka
  • 1 shot (1.5 oz.) Grand Marnier liqueur
  • 2/3 c. pineapple juice
  • 1 can lemon lime soda

Shake the first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice until nice and cold. Strain into 2 tall glasses; top with lemon lime soda and serve. As the Irish say, slainte!
