Method
How to make a The Crocktail

Serves 1 · Takes 3 minutes
In a lowball glass with ice add the cherry liqueur, the cherry juice, the lemon juice and a peel of an orange wedge
Stir all the ingredients to combine and chill, before garnishing with a bit more orange peel to serve
~ The original recipe calls for Arancini - a candied orange peel from Dubrovnik, that gives this drink its unique taste. But knowing that that's quite hard to come by for most, try substituting normal orange peel. Stir all the ingredients to combine and chill, before garnishing with a bit more orange peel to serve. To be true to the original you should be looking for Zadar Maraschino liqueur, sour cherry juice and Arancini. ~
