The Placeholder Cocktail from Trinity Restaurant in New Orleans uses Cimarrón tequila, Pamplemousse, Granny Sherry, lemon, and a La Source Cabernet Float.
Trinity Restaurant in New Orleans shared another tequila recipe with me as a way to celebrate National Tequila Day – which is July 24. And sometimes carries over into the next day…
This drink is called the Placeholder and was made by the bar’s beverage director, Adam Orzechowski. The cocktail uses Cimarrón tequila, Pamplemousse, Granny Sherry, lemon, and a La Source Cabernet Float, and is served on the rocks in a fine rocks glass.
What can make this cocktail even better?
