As promised, here’s another holiday beverage that I’ve tested out. You can expect a few more later in the week. Being home and able to raid my parent’s liquor cabinet is the best! Nothing like making three (ok...four) martinis and laughing with the family.
I decided to make an orange drink since oranges are in season right now. They've been so juicy and delicious, and they were just begging to be juiced and combined with liquor. And a lovely pair they made.
RUM ORANGE COCKTAIL
1 ¾ oz. spiced rum
½ oz. orange curacao
¼ tsp. sugar
½ c. orange juice (or less if you want it strong)
Fill a shaker with ice and add the ingredients Shake for a minute, and pour over ice. Garnish with an orange slice if you’re feeling fancy.
Drink, and repeat. Repeat enough times and you'll be sure to have a great night...and maybe a not so great morning.
