Ultraviolet Haze

I’m back with a refreshing beverage. I wasn’t able to update my blog because I was preoccupied with work. But don’t fret, I’m here now. Yesterday, I was having breakfast with my friend. I had an apple flavored tea and he had an orange juice. I want to have some of his drink, so what I did is I poured in half of the orange juice in my apple tea bottle, gave it a good dose of shake. I tried to taste it with a slight disgust and ickiness from my friend’s face. Then he asked, "How does it taste?" Well, it was very good, surprisingly. So, I want you to try this either as a non alcoholic beverage or with a good amount of booze.

Ultraviolet Haze

4 jiggers Apple flavored green tea
2 jiggers Fresh orange juice (bottled would do, try Tropicana)
1 to 2 jiggers Brandy (optional)
1 t Blue Curacao (optional)
Crushed ice
Orange wheel
Lemon wheel
Maraschino cherry

In a shaker, pour in all the ingredients together with the crushed ice. Shake well. Strain in to a stylish, frosted high glass garnished with the orange, lemon and cherry on the rim. Arrange them one on back of the other.
