I am soooo ready for Election 2012 to be over. But what kind of philistine would I be, if I didn’t offer the perfect cocktail to imbibe during election day coverage?
A bad philistine, that’s what.
Anyway, I thought today’s offering was appropriate. Governor Romney may not imbibe, but we his supporters at H&B do!
- 1½ oz. White Rum (Crystal)
- 1½ oz. Vermouth Blanc
- 1 barspoon* Orange Curaçao or Grand Marnier
- ½ barspoon* Grenadine
- Thinly-sliced Orange Peel
Stir ingredients well over cracked ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist the orange peel over the top and drop in or discard as you prefer. Garnish, if desired, with a cherry. Personally, I prefer this with the Grand Marnier. And don’t pass on the cherry. It makes the drink a very pretty RED!!!
