#DOTW: El Jefe

El Jefe to me is a bit of a “leftover drink” If you make cocktails in your home at least occasionally, then chances are you have all the ingredients for this cocktail in your stash! It’s very delicious, and still pretty summery. You can serve it on the rocks in a highball glass, or you can shake it up and serve it as a Martini. It all sounds good to me! The recipe asks for Rose’s Lime juice, but if you want an even fresher taste, use fresh lime juice and agave nectar.



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Don Julio tequila (or quality tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz Grand Marnier
  • 2 oz pineapple juice
  • 1 oz Rose’s Lime Juice

Combine all ingredients and pour over ice in a highball glass. Decorate with Maraschino cherries and/or pineapple. Pour in a splash of the Maraschino cherry juice if you like!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
