October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but I've been a little tarty in getting something of a cocktail that is fitting of the program. This morning I went to work on an idea that actually came out very well. It had to be pink to go along with the program, and it had to be rum just because I'm a rum guy. Other than that, I was pretty free to go to town.
The Pink Ta Ta
- 2 oz Matusalem Platino Rum
- 1 oz. DeKuyper Pomegranate Liqueur
- 1/2 oz. St. Germaine Elderberry Liqueur
- Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Place all of the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake until really chilled. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with two cherries on a toothpick.
