Happy Hour Tuesday: Colony Records

Happy Hour Tuesday Rometti limoncello Colony Records

Happy Hour Tuesday!

1621 was a year that marked forever our history as Americans. This coming Thursday, three hundred and ninety two years later, we will still gather around a table, reminiscent of all the great people and good times that this past year has been blessing us with, and give thanks for everything/everyone that makes our life special.
To make sure that you will be cheering at this Thanksgiving with a delicious cocktail, we found an amazing recipe online called Colony Records, by Allan Katz, distiller and Liquor.com advisory board member, and nonetheless Director of mixology & spirits education for Southern Wine & Spirits of New York. Colony Records has a fruity, bittersweet flavor  -especially with our own addition of Rometti Limoncello to it!- combined with a spicy touch will be the perfect complement to a Thanksgiving meal.

Ingredients:

2 oz Cruzan Single Barrel Rum
1.5 oz Fresh grapefruit juice
.75 oz Cranberry Syrup*
a splash of Rometti Limoncello
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Combine 1.5 cups of Fresh Cramberries, 1 cup of water, 3/4 cup of sugar in a small saucepan on medium hear. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer for 10 min until the cranberries start to fall apart. Strain into a bowl and let cool. You just made cranberry syrup! Cover and store in the refrigerator.
Add rum, grapefruit juice, cranberry syrup, Rometti Limoncello and Angostura bitters in a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a grapefruit twist.

~Enjoy!
