Dying Days of Summer. The Kitchen Sink

National Rum day has come and gone.  Does that mean we have to move on from our sugar case based liquors? Anyone? I’ll take your silence as a “no” and get you started with a nice cachaca cocktail to finish out your summer days. 

As you may be able to tell from the title, this cocktail was an experiment with a variety of liquors and liqueurs that I had on hand.  I threw in everything but the kitchen sink.    It’s sweet and tart, has some serious summery-ness because of the coconut, and it finishes beautifully with a touch of amaretto.  Here is your arsenal of liquors and liquers.  I also used lime juice and a combination of Fee Brothers grapefruit and old fashioned bitters.   Check out the recipe below the pics. Sorry, I don’t have a picture of the Kalani.  Just close your eyes and picture a lovely coconut tree.  You get the idea.

 

The Kitchen Sink:

1 oz Cachaca

0.50 oz Cassis Syrup

0.50 oz Lime Juice

0.50 oz Kalani Coconut Liqueur

Dash of Fee Brothers Grapefruit Bitters

Dash of Fee Brothers Old Fashioned Bitters

Float of Luxardo Amaretto

Mix all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and mix vigorously to combine.  Strain into a martini glass and enjoy!!
