1, 2, 3 White Rum Cocktails

Updated: Apr 18

Another week down. I hope everyone is staying well. What have you been doing to pass the time?



Fortunately, its Friday which means its cocktails time!

This weeks 1, 2, 3 will be looking at White Rum. I didn't include a daiquiri or its common variants, but being honest this blog isn't far off being called 1, 2, 3 Daquiri's.


With that said let's get on with it!


1

60 ml White Rum

15ml Lime Juice

Bacardi Special

Glass: Coup/ Martini

Method: Shake and Fine strain

Ice: None

Garnish: Maraschino Cherry

45ml Bacardi Carta Blanca

22ml Gin

15ml Lime juice

7ml Grenadine

Old Fashioned Daquiri


Glass: Rocks

Method: Stir and strain

Ice: Large Cube

Garnish: Scorched Lime Wheel

Ingredients

60 ml White Rum

Fat Barspoon* of sugar syrup

2 dashes Lime bitters

Add all of the ingredients to your stirring glass and stir until very cold.

Strain into a rocks glass with a large cube if possible. Pull out your clear ice here if you have it.

*Fat just means a slight over pour of the measure. So a little bit more than a barspoon.

To my understanding, this mostly appears in American recipe's where they measure in ounces, and so the difference between 1 oz and 1.25 oz would be a "fat ounce" and very possibly a "scant ounce and a quarter". God bless the metric system.
