CELEBRATE REPEAL DAY 2010!

Repeal Day on dec 5th commemorates the anniversary of the day the United States repealed the Eighteenth Amendment and gave Americans the constitutional ability to consume alcohol.

If i could i would have attended the Repeal Day Ball in Washington DC held by the DC Craft bartenders Guild – where several of my fellow booze bloggers and cocktailian friends are going. But since i can`t do that i have a tasty cocktail here – its a rum cocktail called Pago Pago and since it contains both muddled pineapple and green Chartreuse and i had all the ingredients on hand i`s right up my alley.This cocktail dates back to circa 1940 and can be found in Beachbum Berry`s Remixed.

PAGO PAGO COCKTAIL

pago-pago1

1 1/2 oz gold rum
1/2 oz lime juice
1/4 oz white Crème de Cacao
1/2 oz green Chartreuse
3 mud­dled pineap­ple slices

Mud­dle pineap­ple slices in a shaker. Add all ingre­di­ents and shake with ice. Strain into chilled cock­tail glass. Garnish with pineapple slice and leaves.

This is a very nice little cocktail, and after one i wanted another..

The green chartreuse and pineapple plays so well together with the rum and lime. But i didn´t feel much from the Creme de Cacao though, let`s see if Mozart Dry can change that.

So since this cocktail only did tease my appetite i decided to make a little twist of it as well since its so tasty and fun to play with. So instead of white Creme de Cacao  i took the ever so tasty Mozart Dry Chocolate Spirit and switched out the rum for something more potent like Smith & Cross and to make an interesting flavor some aged cachaca.

Mozart Dry is really one of my favorite spirits and i cannot enough recommend it, this stuff really can transform a cocktail.

PAGO #2

pago-2

1 oz Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum
1 oz aged Cachaca ( i used Abelha Gold)
1/2 oz lime juice
1/4 oz Mozart Dry Chocolate Spirit
1/4 oz sugarcane syrup (Petit canne)
1/2 oz green Chartreuse
3 muddled pineapple slices

Using Mozart Dry Chooclote spirit really changed things to the better! there wasn´t any pronounced chocolate taste immediately but then in the aftertaste it came…just enough of raw dark chocolate…awesome. The whole drink was nice, and i love Smith & Cross with green Chartreuse!

Happy Repeal Day everyone!
