I decided to use the bar air for today's drink recipe, so I pulled a random number out of the drink jar....#56 Millionaire No. 2. And just to prove that everything is going right today...I actually have every ingredient on hand so no trip to the local liquor store. SWEET!
RECIPE: 1/3 each Jamaica Rum, Apricot Brandy, and Sloe Gin, 1 dash Grenadine, juice of 1 Lime. Shake with ice and strain into glass.
Here is a close up of the particular brands...I personally like Appleton Estate Jamaican Rum and always use Rose's Grenadine. Also if you need to pick up some Sloe Gin you might not find it along with all the standard gins, I found this bottle over with all the cordials....and on the Apricot Brandy, I'm not sure. Luckily we received a bottle of it, homemade, from a friend several months ago and it was in the freezer. Now since the the recipe only calls for one third of each ingredient but no actual measurement...I used my 1.5oz jigger for each.
Thanks A & D. The Apricot Brandy is delicious!
Here is all the ingredients in my new shaker...to save time I just split the lime into quarters, squeezed and dropped each segment.
A little shake and some straining and Viola! Finished Product!
VERDICT: Delicious. I want another! The flavors meld perfectly. The recipe says to strain all ice but I think I prefer it with a few ice cubes
You should try it. Have a great weekend everyone!
