Copycat Cocktail (my attempt to copy a P.F. Chang's cocktail)
  • Cooking Time: 0
  • Servings: 1
  • Preparation Time: 3
  • 2 part pineapple juice
  • 1 part vanilla vodka
  • 1/2 part raspberry liquor
  1. In a shaker with ice, shake 2 parts pineapple juice with 1 part vanilla vodka. Pour into martini glass. Carefully trickle 1/2 part raspberry liquor down side of glass so that the berry-colored fluid sinks to the bottom while the golden pineapple mixture floats on top. Garnish (or not) with whatever creative fruit bits you have available.
It's beautiful and it's easy -- you'll be surprised. Ordered a cocktail at P.F. Chang's last summer. I don't recall the name. I'm not a sweet cocktail loving person--my drinks usually involve gin and olives (lots of glorious green olives). I despise grenadine and vodka concoctions--yuck. Despite the sweetness of the P.F. Chang's cocktail, one sip and I was in love. The best part was that the flavors changed as I continued to work my way through the golden top that turned to silky purple in the bottom of the glass.
