Last week I picked up some different rums to make the hurricane cocktail for Mardi Gras.   Since I had some extra lying around I decided to make another cocktail.  This one combines my two favorite juices, orange juice and cranberry juice.

The Rumster

I served it straight up in a Martini glass but also enjoyed it on the rocks.

The Rumster

  • 3/4 oz light rum
  • 3/4 oz dark rum
  • 1/2 oz triple sec
  • 3 oz orange juice
  • 3 oz cranberry juice
  • squeeze lemon
  • cherry for garnish

In a shaker full of ice mix all of the ingredients.  Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a cherry.

You can also rim the glass with sugar, but I failed to do that in the picture.  🙁

  1. Prune juice my tuchas (or in Bachman speak two kass). I think brgining the pitchforks was a fitting metaphor. It is shocking and fascinating how powerful a movement like the Tea Party became and so quickly. Don’t think the Dems could pull off the same. Conservatives don’t hate old people, they hate takers and users those who don’t contribute and leech off the society of those who work hard and are successful (reference the ant and the grasshopper ). Accomplished people don’t want to support the lazy. Of course there are those who must be taken care of, but not druggies and welfare abusers. They’ve been coddled for too long. They laugh at Liberals whose hearts are breaking all the time (see Bonnie K., mi esposa, who can’t wait to cry at every NPR story so that she can send money to their causes).
