There are sophisticated cocktails that have been around for decades, that have a tradition and a unique story behind them, so that you feel like you are experiencing history when you order one.  In modern times, however, mixologists are simply concerned with creating the most delicious drink possible. This is certainly the latter, as it is known as one of the tastiest modern drinks around.

Even more dangerous, the drink is a shooter, which means that you may be tempted to take one after the other. The shooter is a clear reference to the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, a movie that ended up being an international success by acclaimed director Ang Lee, and actually ended up making history.  The movie racked up 10 Academy Awards nominations, and actually became the highest-grossing foreign language film in U.S. history at the time.  The shooter has an Asian exotic flavor, which makes it a favorite for any type of party – and the name hints at the kind of danger involved, as it is so delicious that you may be tempted to never stop drinking it!

Ingredients:

  • ¾ ounce lychee liqueur
  • ¾ ounce 100% blue agave silver liqueur

Instructions:

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker over ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a shot glass.

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Shot glass

The tequila and lychee liqueur mixes into an ultra-sweet concoction that everyone can enjoy.  It doesn’t matter whether you are trying to toast for a friend’s birthday or surprise a hot date with something tasty – the shooter can certainly impress everyone around you with how delicious it can be!

Another great aspect of the Crouching Tiger is that it can vary greatly in color, so the presentation can be more fun than the traditional clear tequila shot. The recipe didn’t originate from an obscure bar, but actually from SOHO lychee liqueur, which certainly has been a great marketing move for the company.  The next time you are in a celebratory or party mood, order a Crouching Tiger for you and everyone around you, and be careful to not let it creep up on you!
