Thirsty Thursdays — Absolute Stress (Reliever)

4 Mar

Since you now know I am away slacking in the Caribbean, I thought it only appropriate that I share with you a recipe for a drink to help transport you to an equally tropical state of mind. Enter the Absolute Stress (Reliever). I first tried one of these cocktails in New Orleans and I must say, I was hooked and had to find the recipe for myself. As originally made, the drink called for peach schnapps. You can use this, but I have found that as I have gotten older, my taste buds are not such a fan this overly sweet liqueur. I have substituted peach-flavored vodka here.

So don’t delay, gather your ingredients and transport yourself to a wonderful, tropical place this weekend, even if it is only in your living room 🙂

Absolute Stress (Reliever)
Serves 1

1/2 ounce coconut rum
1/2 ounce vodka
1/2 ounce peach vodka (or peach schnapps)
1 ounce orange juice
1 ounce pineapple juice
1 ounce cranberry juice

Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into cocktail glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish as desired and enjoy!
