Happy Hour: Lemon Meringue Cocktail

Beware: It's easy to get pie-eyed with this citrusy confection of a cocktail.

- 2 oz. Boru Citrus Flavored Vodka
- 1 oz. Pallini Limoncello
- 1 oz. simple syrup
- 1 oz. half-and-half, chilled
- Whipped cream; peeled and minced lemon zest (for garnish)

To make simple syrup, bring 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature. Combine vodka, limoncello, simple syrup and half-and-half with ice in a cocktail shaker, and shake well. Strain into a martini glass. Top with a dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle lemon zest on the cream.

With a Twist martini glass, $9; Ceskà, 201-891-4108, ceska.com.

I like your happy hour posts. Any ideas for purple, teal blue, or green drinks? We'd like to have a couple signature cocktails at our wedding in these colors!
