Spicy Banana Breeze




Seeing as I've been on a spiced rum kick as of late, I thought this would be an appropriate drink. It's a nice lil remix to a Rum Bay Breeze (rum, cranberry juice and pineapple juice). So I used two different ingredients and it definitely makes a huge impact on flavor and intensity (proof). Let's get to the recipe:

3/4 oz Spiced Rum
3/4 oz Banana Liqueur (99 schnapps adds potency)
Cranberry Juice
Top with Pineapple Juice

This is extremely tasty but please be wise to sip slow cuz the 99 schnapps has some bite! Enjoy!

Peachy Libre




Now, this came as a complete accident. A friend came over and I had some silver rum and she had peach amsterdam. The only mix we had was cherry coke and some lime juice. So being the mixologist I am..I said why not? It could work!

If you ever had a Cuba Libre, all it basically consists of is rum, coke and a splash of lime juice. This has a subtle remix obviously.

The break down is this:

3/4 oz Peach Vodka
3/4 oz Silver Rum
1/2 oz of Lime Juice
Top off with Cherry Coke

There are a lot of flavor notes in this thing but it's mighty good!
