Arizona Sunset Cocktail Recipes

Arizona sunset cocktail, made with lemon juice, orange juice, tequila and Triple Sec, and Creme de Noyaux is an exotic tropical drink.

While almost every drink establishment serves this refreshing cocktail, you can also prepare it at home. All the ingredients are easily available in the market; you just need to mix them in a cocktail shaker and serve.

This exotic cocktail is best served in a Beer Mug but you can also serve it in a tall-stemmed glass. It is recommended to serve this drink in rimmed glass, since this will not only decorate your drink but will also add the appeal factor to it. However, it is optional and you can skip it.

    Cook time: Nil
    Total time: 7 minutes

    Measure an ounce and a half of white tequila and pour it into the cocktail shaker filled 3/4th with ice. Also add one ounce of triple sec, half ounce of lime juice  and four ounces of orange juice to the shaker, and mix thoroughly. Meanwhile, half fill your serving glass with ice cubes or crushed ice and slowly pour enough creme de noyaux so that some cream settles at the bottom of the glass. Pour the mixture from the shaker into the glass, top it with cream and serve chilled.

    If you are not topping the cocktail with cream, garnish it with straw, a lime or orange wedge and cherry. If you are  serving the drink in a tall-stemmed glass, rim the glass for decoration and flavour, but it is optional.
