It’s been one of those days where I’ve done a bad job of both relaxing and being productive. The worst. Days like these come to a point where you just can’t seem to turn them around… unless… I may have just the elixir.
There’s a part of me that knows cocktails on a regular Wednesday is not a wise solution. A small part. A part that today, I choose to ignore. This way to a goooood time.
A cocktail, inspired by the writer of the same name
What you’ll need:
4 tablespoons white rum
a dash maraschino liqueur
2 tablespoons grapefruit juice
juice of 1/2 lime
2 tablespoons of simple (sugar) syrup
Ice (crushed, preferably)
- Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with the ice
- Shake well
- Strain into a chilled cocktail glass (like the ones in the picture) and drop in a maraschino cherry
