DISCLAIMER: This is not an actual "Top Ten" list
So, I was going to link the snot out of my previous post. I still plan to do this, but I wanted to get a recipe out of the way first. I've also been considering format and titling. Should I just put the drink name in the post title? Should I give the story before or after the recipe? Does it need a photo? Do I write a long amusing story or is simpler better? Who knows? The CSWOG knows!
Anyway, here it is:
1.5oz citrus spiced rum
0.5oz rooibos coco chai syrup
0.5oz lemon juice
Shake, rocks, peel.
I think I spent longer on the name than I did on the drink. It's okay. It may need tweaking. The syrup didn't turn out as I'd hoped so maybe syrupping properly is all that's needed. (that's right I used syrup as a verb). My rum was going to be spiced rum but the citrus peels overtook the other flavours. I added more orange and decided I didn't need to replace my Triple Sec.
So about the name....
I had curling on the brain. I'll expand on that later. I'll tell you about that and the Lemon Party.
The name, the party, and some other stuff...
