We had the opportunity to visit Chimayo, New Mexico. It's truly a magical and mysterious place. I could talk about it for hours, but research it to find out what an amazing place it is. We plan on returning.
Here's an interesting cocktail from Chimayo. It was invented at the Rancho de Chimayo. It provided a happy way of using the cider from their Apple Orchards.
Here are a few photographs of the El Santuario de Chimayo.
This recipe makes one serving.
Here's what you'll need:
A Cocktail Shaker with a Strainer
6oz - 8oz tall glasses
1 1/4 oz. Tequila
2 oz. Apple Cider
1 1/2 tsp Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/2 tsp Creme de Cassis ( Sweet Dark Black Currant Liqueur)
Fill the Cocktail Shaker with 6 - 8 Ice Cubes
Add all of the ingredients.
Shake well about 6 - 7 times.
Strain into a Glass and serve.
Peace in the Kitchen!
