The term "Bossa Nova" is thought to be of Brazilian descent, and roughly translated, means "new trend". The phrase took hold in the late fifties, and referred to a new style of music that fused Samba and Jazz. I don't know the story of how this cocktail came to be, however, I do know that it has a great tropical taste with quite a few levels of flavor. The Galliano adds a somewhat sweet and herbal flavor that helps gives this cocktail a complex and unique taste. Do enjoy our featured cocktail, the... Bossa Nova!
1 oz. Sweet & Sour mix
3 oz. Pineapple Juice
Cherry for garnish
Pour all of the ingredients into an ice filled cocktail shaker. Cover, shake well, and pour into a rocks glass. Add a couple of sipping straws, garnish with a Cherry, and get ready to dance the night away, with the... Bossa Nova. Cheers!
