We present you a cocktail prefect for this Mardi Gras evening, our “classy” version of the Hurricane! It’s delicious and potent so watch out! Thanks to our friend Ward for the great suggestion via our facebook page.
The Slurricane (no, we’re not kidding)
1 oz Smith & Cross Navy Strength Rum
1 oz Pierre Ferrand Cigare Cognac
1/2 oz honey-cinnamon syrup (recipe below)
1/2 oz grenadine (recipe below)
1/2 oz lime juice
2 dashes St. George Absinthe
Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice and cap with a shaker tin. Shake vigorously and strain into a Collins glass. Add crushed ice and a lime wheel to garnish. ***Note: we love the Derby Co. Lewis bag and mallet combo. Great for crushing ice by hand.
2 cups honey
2 cups water
2-3 cinnamon sticks
Combine in a small sauce pan and place on high heat. Bring near a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for about 45 mins. Remove from heat, allow to cool, place in a jar, seal and refrigerate. Good for at least 2 weeks.
2 cups POM juice
2 cups sugar
Zest of 1 orange
Zest of 1/2 a grapefruit
Combine ingredients in a small sauce pan on high heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 15 mins and remove from heat. Allow to cool, place in a jar, seal and refrigerate. Good for at least 2 weeks.
