You Don’t Gnome Me: A Holiday Tequila Cocktail

The holiday season is made for sharing, and this large-format tequila cocktail will keep a handful of friends in good spirits. The gnome mug pictured here is a repurposed cookie jar; other (nonbearded) containers will work just as well.


  • 6 oz. blanco tequila
  • 4 oz. apple brandy (such as Laird’s bonded)
  • 4 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 4 oz. fresh pineapple juice
  • 4 oz. guava purée
  • 4 oz. orgeat
  • 1 oz. cinnamon syrup (1:1)
  • Tools:shaker
  • Glass:gnome mug or similar large vessel
  • Garnish:pineapple crescent, 3 pineapple fronds, 3 lime wheels, 3 starfruit slices, orchids


Combine all of the ingredients and briefly shake with crushed ice. (You may need to do this in several batches, depending on the size of your shaker.) Pour unstrained into an oversize mug, and garnish.
