A Pleasant Summer Cocktail

I’m not in the habit of making cocktails, and I don’t drink a lot of them either. The exception is the special one made by Igor at the Bloom Bar just off King’s Cross Road. Igor is a genius and he makes people cocktails according to their tastes.

Other than that, though, it’s wine or whisky all the way for me. Except for one time in April, when I didn’t feel like drinking either of those things. I have an extensive drinks collection at home even though I don’t drink most of them, so I thought I’d make up a cocktail and see how it went.

It went well. 

The recipe:

– Mainly cranberry juice
– Generous helping of Captain Morgan rum
– Juice of 1 orange slice
– Dash of Lagavulin 16yr
– Dash of maple syrup

Mix ’em all up in a cocktail shaker, pour into a glass, garnish with an orange slice.

Team it with Spotify’s radio for Dream On by Aerosmith and sip it on the balcony as you watch the sun go down.
