mxmo-brown-and-bitter

I don´t know what happened but it feels like i forgot the last MxMo or there was none…or maybe we`ve all were boozed by Tales of the Cocktail…but now MxMo has come to life again!

Our MxMo host Lindsey Johnson from Lush Life Productions says on her blog Brown and Bitter:

This MxMo will celebrate these styles of drink; whether it’s a basic Manhattan with a tinkered touch of Averna, or a revolutionary mixture of tequila, Campari and pure adrenaline, mix up your favorite brown-booze cocktail and put the details on your blog with a photo by the end of Monday August 30.

Brown spirits yay! this means for me – most of the time:

RUM, RUM and MORE RUM!!

Thank you Lindsey for both hosting and giving me the perfect excuse to completely indulge in RUMS! – AND to play with my new Dandelion&Burdock bitters and a dash or two of my favorite – the Creole Bitters!

Brown, bitter and stirred…doesn`t it sound delisicious?

I decided to go wild with the rums because that`s also deliscious and i wanted two bitters to spice up the drink. The rums chosen are all very flavorful and spicy so the result is a spicy boozy drink.

SUGARCANE AND SPICE
