Cocktail recipe for over 21 only. Please drink responsibly.
1 ounce Blue Curacao
2 1/2 ounce unfiltered apple juice
1 1/2 ounce lime juice
Let’s prepare the jicama first. Cut a jicama in half and save the other half in the fridge. Lay the cut side down on a cutting board. Use a chef’s knife to cut down at an angle to cut the skin off. You will take a bit of the jicama with it but that can’t be helped. Now you have a skinned jicama. Keep the jicama with the cut side down and make slices that are about 1/4″ thick. See the photo for an idea of the thickness. Now push straight down with a small star cookie cutter. Put all of the jicama stars and pieces in a container such as a measuring cup and cover them with water. They will keep days in the fridge like this. Now for our cocktail. Mix the vodka, Blue Curacao, apple juice, lime juice together. It’s potent! Fill a tall glass with ice and intersperse with a few raspberries and jicama stars. Pour the cocktail mix over the ice and serve with raspberries on a toothpick and a star on the rim. Happy holiday!
