White Wine What?

“You know what this would be good with? Campari.”
“Like a kir royale. It’s getting a cherry, if that’s OK with you.”
“Now it needs a rock.”
“It’s missing something, a little heat. Maybe vodka. Or gin!”
“Yeah, gin.”
“Hm, now that I look in the liquor cabinet, how about rum? Smelling them together makes me think this is a good idea.”
“Ok, go for it.”

Surprisingly tasty. Surprisingly beautiful.

1 gl sauvignon blanc
1 Luxardo cherry
Campari to taste (just enough to taste it clearly)
big rock
rum to taste, maybe ½ oz. (I used Mt Gay)

Maitiki

Getting a bottle of allspice dram was exciting. What could we do with it? We don’t have anything like a full bar so it’s hard to just look up “tiki drink” and be able to make what you find. There’s a lot of interpretation and experimentation.

The name is atrocious but the drink delicious. I welcome suggestions for a better name, since this one is just a stupid pun on “my tiki drink” and “mai-tai” though it has nothing to do with a mai-tai.

2 oz Mt Gay Rum
¾ oz allspice dram
¼ oz Carpano Antica
⅛ oz agave nectar
½ Meyer lemon

Combine (squeeze and include lemon) in shaker. Serve over crushed ice.
