Life is Beautiful


8. October 2013 by swizzzlestick

Life is beautiful if you travel through the world, taking with you always the positive things, but without closing your eyes towards the sorrows elsewhere.

It is like a cocktail. If you combine with consideration the best ingredients something new and wonderful is created. Taking part in the “Intercontinental” Mixology Monday challenge, and,


I invented and mixed the Life is Beautiful, an exotic fruity digestif cocktail on the rocks.


4 cl African Amarula Liqueur

3 cl Mexican Tequila

2 cl French Cointreau

1 cl Chinese Kwai Fee Lychee Liqueur

1 cl Lemon Juice

Garnish: 1 Slice of New Zealand Kiwi and 1 Cocktail Cherry


Shake the ingredients with ice in a shaker and strain into a Old Fashioned glass filled with ice. Garnish with the slice of Kiwi and the cocktail cherry.
