Spring Fever Springtail Libation is Here

Bahama Bob's Rumscooter
    The first days of the arrival of the real spring means that we need a new cocktail.   Here is one idea that will help you enjoy the arrival of the warm days down here in Key West.  Just because the ground hog lied, doesn't mean we can't enjoy spring a few weeks late.  This will be a fun and tasty addition to your recipe book for a warm spring afternoon.   The warmth, my scooter and a case of rum, how can it get any better?

Bahama Bob's Springtail
  • 1 1/2 oz. Brinley's Gold Coconut Rum
  • 1 oz. Siesta Key Spiced Rum
  • 1 oz. Cruzan Key Lime Rum
  • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Orange Juice
  • Splash of Barritt's Ginger Beer
Place all item except the ginger beer in a shaker filled with ice.  Shake until chilled and strain into a pint glass filled with ice.  Garnish with a sprig of mint and an orange wheel.

    For those in the frozen north, I hope you do thaw out pretty soon, I know that it didn't happen soon enough down here.  Anyway let's celebrate spring finally springing  here in Key West.  Even if you are in the still freezing parts of this wonderful world we live on.  ;o)
