Cocktail of the Week: The Bridgetown

Leave a comment

Do you like sweet tea? Do you like dark rum? Is it hot outside? Then this drink is for you! Now don’t be scared if sweet tea isn’t your thing. This drink does not particularly taste like sweet tea, bumanifesto images (7)t it does conjure up that similar sense of nostalgia that makes one feel like you’re on a porch somewhere warm kicking back with a nice big glass of tea or in this case, booze. In our book, this cocktail is as necessary as a Mint Julep.  Make it and discover a new Summer favorite.

Bridgetown

3 dashes Angostura Aromatic bitters

1/2 Velvet Falernum (we make our own, but we don’t expect you to do that as well so use John D. Taylor’s; it works great in this cocktail and can be found at most liquor stores)

1 oz Gosling’s Black Seal Rum

1 oz Appleton White Rum

Add falernum and rum to mixing glass, add ice. Stir until cold, strain into old fashion glass and add additional cube(s). Garnish with 3 dashes of Angostura bitters and a hearty bunch of mint.
