I love drinks made with apricot brandy. This one is really good. I omitted the grenadine. Thanks AuntSana :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
When I Googled Auringonlasku it came up with Sunset photos...because that's what it means in Finnish. This is a nice twist on the tequila sunrise and it was perfect for a hot summer night. Made for ZWT #6's trip to Scandinavia and I'm a Quisine Queen!!
We're suckers for anything with apricot in it so this cocktail was a sure fire hit! I didn't have apricot brandy so I used regular brandy and apricot nectar; it turned out FANTASTIC with that addition! Added everything else including a cinnamon swizzle stick. Great way to celebrate my husband's birthday dinner, with this cocktail to start us out on the right foot! Made for Kittencal's Scandinavian Tag Game 2010.
