As you might know, I got into craft cocktailing a while back. I guess once you hit your 50s even a good bottle of wine doesn’t hit the sob factor anymore. As noted in my New Italian Sunday Dinner post, our Sunday afternoons consist of good food and a good cocktail. It’s the perfect for me and spouse to reconnect, relax and get a little silly. But one Sunday we decided to go out for drinks and dinner. We stopped at RYE in Fells Point and after ordering one off the menu, I did what i usually do–tell the bartender to make something they’ve been working on. Here’s what I got:
A Parnubes Daiquiri
Paranubes is a Mexican Rum that has hints of smokey Mezcal flavors to it. It’s stuck between bitter and sweet as well. It’s also quite strong so please… Only one per week.
- 1.5 parts Paranubes Rum
- 1 part Lime Juice Maybe a little more to taste
- 0.5 part simple syrup or extra fine sugar
- 4 dashes Chocolate Bitters to taste
Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and pour into a Nick and Nora Cocktail Glass and garnish with a lime slice.
