The story of this drink isn't long.
My wife handed me two books with a beautiful grin on her face. Bartending books. FULL of alphabetized recipes collected from the far corners of the world. Strange brews, curious concoctions, and plenty of things to try out and mess with.
After a few quick flips through the tall pages, I had to pause at the D's. We've got our usuals: Dirty Martini, Desert Sunrise, Dark and Stormy....and then, Designer Jeans?
Yup. It's a fun little shot.
1/2 oz Dark Rum (I recommend Bacardi Black Rum)
1/2 oz Irish Cream
1/2 oz Raspberry Liqueur
*Pour into a shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into a shooter glass.
+ Sweet with a bite, as expected.
+ Shaking is key here, as the chill is needed. This warm...is not pleasant.
+ Shaking is also the best way to mix the Irish Cream with the rest, as a stir tends to separate.
+ Pleasant shot
+ Surprising and lovely
+ Meant to be shot, not sipped.
More to come. Happy New Year.
