As promised, today I have the second installment of cocktails inspired by Bonny’s liquor cabinet.
When Karen and I were brainstorming ideas, she said she had that Malibu Rum in her cabinet, too, because it was a necessary ingredient in one of her favorite vacation cocktails, a Charleston Sunset from Fleet Landing (in Charleston)
Fleet Landing uses Peach Schnapps, which Bonny doesn’t have, but Karen substituted a little syrup from a can of peaches and declared it a success.
(inspired by Fleet Landing)
1 oz vodka
1 oz coconut rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1-1/2 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz peach juice (from a can of peaches)
Fill a glass with ice. Add all the ingredients and stir.
Our fourth suggestion was the hardest to pull off – because we had a really hard time finding ginger apple cider. My sister finally tracked down a six-pack of cans (made locally – who knew?!). She tried a version of our cranberry mule, but it wasn’t good. I tried a simpler version and think it works. Honestly, the ginger cider is not my favorite and I’m not sure if it’s ginger cider in general, or just this one… so I’m sharing the recipe – thinking that if you like ginger cider, you’ll enjoy it!
1 oz vodka
6 oz ginger cider
1 lime wedge
Fill a glass with ice. Combine the vodka and cider. Squeeze in the lime wedge and then it add to the glass. Stir just to combine.
Cheers to Bonny and Happy Saturday!
(and now my NaBloPoMo is done – I’ll see you back here on Monday!)
