Czechers in Paradise
A rum aged in charred oak barrels that lend their color to the rum. If a recipe calls for this rum it is likely refuring to a darker colored rum with a rich and strong yet smooth flavor. Common varieties come from Jamaica and Haiti.
A Czech herbal bitters, often drunk as a digestive aid. It has a ginger or cinnamon-like flavor; 38% ABV.
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
A Spanish liqueur made from citrus and fruit juices, flavored with vanilla and other aromatic herbs and spices (a total of 43); 31% ABV. Used in a Mexican cocktail, the carajillo.
Shake all ingredients over ice until chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over one large cube. #shake #ontherocks
