Pepe Le Pew and Penelope approve this cocktail.
Pepe Le Pew and Penelope love this drink.

Valentine's Day is upon us.  Even if you're like me and think Valentine's Day is nothing more than a Hallmark holiday (much to my wife's annoyance), it is an excellent opportunity to woo your lover through their liver.  Here's how:

1.5 ounces reposado tequila
.75 ounces Cointreau or other triple sec
1 ounce cranberry juice
Juice from 1/2 a lime

Combine in shaker with ice, shake as if you're throwing your entire body and soul into something (or someone) you love, and strain into a chilled glass.  Lime garnish optional.

Thanks to for introducing me to this drink.  I recommend using reposado instead of blanco tequila, but the Passion is fine if you use blanco.

The cocktail essentially is a Cosmopolitan that replaces vodka with tequila, or a Margarita that adds a bit of cranberry juice.  Regardless of how you view the drink, you will like the taste.  And so will your significant other.
