HAPPY HOUR FRIDAY – New Year’s Eve is right around the corner! Here’s one of our
favorite festive rum cocktails.
The Old Bermudan
6 mint leaves
1 ounce simple syrup (or less, to taste)
3/4 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
1 1/2 ounces Gosling’s Rum
2 dashes Angostura bitters
2 oz chilled champagne
In a cocktail shaker add mint, simple syrup & lime juice. Gently muddle the mint leaves. Add Gosling’s Rum and Angostura bitters. Fill shaker with ice, and shake well for 10 seconds. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass (you may wish to use a tea strainer to remove the tiny flecks of mint). Top with champagne; garnish with a mint leaf. Cheers!
