“This is like having an after dinner drink and dessert all in one! Simple to make - yet quite elegant when served in cocktail or martini glasses. To make this nonalcoholic, use orange juice instead of the orange liqueur and pineapple juice in place of the tequila. Refrigeration time is not included.”
