The Rum Kick
RumFest in New York had a competition for cocktails this year. Unfortunately, I did not win, but that doesn't mean I can't share the recipe with you. It's a relatively simple drink that uses cold coffee for it's unique ingredient. Plus the caffeine gives a little "kick."
1.25 oz Cockspur Rum
0.50 oz Bols Vanilla
t tsp Goldschlager
1.00 oz Cold Coffee*
1 tsp Simple Syrup (2:1)
Stir and Strain into Martine Glass
Garnish with Cinammon Stick
* Brew a medium strong pot of coffee using a medium roast coffee bean.
Allow sufficient time for coffee to cool before using it in the
cocktail. If needed, put coffee carafe on ice.
1. Too much Goldschlager can overpower the drink
