The Overseas Highway

     I started working on this idea a month or so ago, but with some changes happening and just really busy getting my world in order to start my new adventures, this kind of got put on the back burner. Today is a really rainy day here in Key and a freezing cold 74 damp degrees outside, perfect to get back out on the aft deck rum lab and work on a new cocktail.

     I'm not much for mixers, so I like to work with things like wine, liqueurs, and fresh fruits to create these new cocktails.  Today's idea is working with a very nice rum from Peru called Cartavio XO and a extra dry and a sweet Vermouth.  This makes a nice befor or after dinner cocktail or just one to sit on the patio with and just sip and enjoy.



The Overseas Highway

  • 1 oz. Cartavio XO
  • 1 oz. Gallo Extra Dry Vermouth
  • 1 oz. Gallo Sweet Vermouth
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Twist of Lemon
Place all of the ingredients except the lemon peel into a shaker filled with ice.  Shake until fully chilled and strain over fresh ice in a tumbler.  Garnish with the twist of lemon and serve.
