Recipes: Twilight Cocktails From Tres Agaves in Roseville


Heads up, Twilight fans: To celebrate tomorrow’s premiere of Eclipse, the third movie in the teen-vampire saga, Tres Agaves in Roseville came up with a couple of crimson-hued cocktails. (They’re blood-red—get it?) Bartender Cristian Lara generously offered to share the recipes.

1/2 ounce agave nectar
2 ounce 100% agave tequila
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 ounce fresh orange juice
1/2 ounce blackberry juice (3 blackberries)
1/2 ounce raspberry juice (3-4 raspberries)

Muddle blackberries with all other ingredients. Shake with ice in shaker and
strain over ice into glass. Garnish with mint sprig and a blackberry.

1/4 ounce lime juice
1 ounce POM pomegranate juice
1/4 ounce agave nectar
1 1/2 ounce 100% agave tequila
2 strawberries

Muddle strawberries with the rest of the ingredients in the bottom of a glass before shaking. Strain over a glass full of fresh ice. Garnish with a fresh strawberry. (If you want to get fancy, dip the rim of the glass in agave nectar, then in a mixture of sugar colored with POM juice.)
