La Florida

 It's no secret that I'm a sucker for rum and vermouth and grenadine. In fact the Sloppy Joe may just have been my stepping stone to discovering tiki drinks.  It was many years ago and it's a little hazy... Another such drink, also from Cuba, is La Florida.  It's like the Art Deco version of a Sloppy Joe ;)

La Florida

La Florida
1oz lime juice
½oz Italian vermouth
¼oz creme de cacao
tsp curacao
tsp grenadine
1 ounce light PR rum (Havana Club)
Shake, strain, twist

This is delicous! I need to make this more often.
