Alright, it has already snowed here in Wyoming and northern Colorado--like, a lot. If that doesn't make you want to break out the rum, you must be a better person than I. Or just crabbier!
Makes 1 drink
- 1 1/4 ounce(s) Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum
- 6 ounce(s) hot apple cider
- 1 tablespoon(s) sugar
- 1 tablespoon(s) cinnamon
Add hot apple cider and Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum to a glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon.
- 1 1/2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon
- 1/2 ounce dark rum
- 1/2 ounce port
- 1 dash orange bitters
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
Stir well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Or perhaps whiskey is more your style...
- 2 ounces blended Scotch whiskey
- 1 ounce ruby port
- 1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
- 2 dashes orange bitters
Stir well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass; it should pour a luminous garnet red.
- 1 sugar cube
- 3 dashes Angostura bitters
- club soda
- 2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon
Place the sugar cube (or 1/2 teaspoon loose sugar) in an Old-Fashioned glass. Wet it down with 2 or 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a short splash of water or club soda. Crush the sugar with a wooden muddler, chopstick, strong spoon, lipstick, cartridge case, whatever. Rotate the glass so that the sugar grains and bitters give it a lining. Add a large ice cube. Pour in the rye (or bourbon). Serve with a stirring rod.
