juan ho royale

3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Blue Curaçao (Senior Curaçao Clear + 1 drop blue food coloring)
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1 1/2 oz Blanco Tequila (Avion)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe (Fizz glass) with 2 oz sparkling wine (Willm Blanc de Blancs).
After my bar shift two Fridays ago, I turned to the Smuggler's Cove book to find a sparkling wine recipe that I had spotted last time. The drink in question was the Juan Ho Royale that Martin Cate created for Hula's in Santa Cruz. TikiCentral first listed the recipe in 2007 as the champagne-less Juan Ho, and the restaurant still has that bubbles-free drink on the menu as the Juan Ho Martini. I was only able to find the Royale version in Cate's book though. In the glass, the Juan Ho Royale offered savory and vegetal agave notes to the nose. Next, a carbonated lime, orange, and white wine sip led into tequila, nutty, and clove flavors on the swallow.
