Yield: 1 Serving


  • 1¼ ounces sloe gin
  • 1¼ ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce Triple Sec
  • 3 ounces peach puree
  • 3 ounces pineapple juice
  • Splash of soda
  • Black tapioca pearls*
  • 1 slice of orange
  • 1 Maraschino cherry

    *Purchase tapioca pearls at gourmet food stores or at Asian food markets. Tapioca pearls, when cooked properly, should be soft to the center. Keep them in a syrup solution of white sugar, brown sugar, water and honey, for no more than 4-6 hours, stirring often, to prevent clumping.


Combine all ingredients except the tapioca pearls in a shaker and mix well. Place the tapioca pearls in a tall glass and add ice. Pour the liquid over the ice and garnish with the orange and cherry on a cocktail pick.
