Nathalie's First Cocktails

My handsome husband, Matt and my lovely sister, Nathalie
During Christmastime, my sister, Nathalie, came to San Diego for a visit all the way from Hawaii. And now that she's finally 21, Matthew and I were finally able to take her to The Turf Supper Club in Golden Hill. The Turf Club is a bar and grill restaurant with a very 40's retro feel. Here you cook your own steak in an indoor grill right smack in the middle of the restaurant. The food is good, and very affordable, but I especially like their cocktails. My sister tried two of their best: the sidecar, made with tequila, and, of course, a sex-on-the-beach.

TEQUILA SIDECAR

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ounces 1800 Anejo Tequila
  • 1 ounce Torres Orange Liqueur
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • lemon twist
  • sugar, for the rim
PREPARATION

In an ice-filled martini shaker, combine 1800, Torres Orange Liqueur and juice. Shake well and strain mixture into a Martini glass rimmed with sugar. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Nathalie and her Sex-on-the-Beach This cocktail is quite fruity and sweet, and it's specially good for people who are not into hard alcohol. It's usually good to only have one or two of these because sometimes you tend to forget that they are loaded with alcohol.

SEX ON THE BEACH

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 oz vodka
  • 3/4 oz peach schnapps
  • 1/2 oz crème de cassis
  • 2 oz orange juice
  • 2 oz cranberry juice
  • Orange slice for garnish
  • maraschino cherry for garnish
PREPARATION

Pour all the ingredients, except for orange slice and cherry, into a shaker filled with ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Garnish with the orange slice and maraschino cherry.
