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!
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
1 oz Smith & Cross jamaican Rum
1 oz Old New Orleans Cajun Spice rum
0.5 oz Lemon Hart 151 demerara (if you don´t have this one, use another demerara)
0.5 oz Sugar Cane syrup (Petit Canne)
3 dashes Dandelion & Burdock Bitters
2 dashes Creole Bitters
1 piece of lemon peel for expressing the oil
Stir with ice, pour in a chilled cocktail glass, express the oil from the lemon peel and rim the glass, then discard the peel
Happy Monday! and thank you Linsey for hosting!
