Simple Three Item Cocktail!

     One thing that I always hear these days from the home mixologists is "I need a good three item cocktail".  Here is an idea for one that might surprise you and won't break the budget either.   I was fooling around yesterday with some Brugal Blanco extra dry white rum and found this to be a tasty and very simple cocktail.  Either of the liqueurs will work fine, and cranberry cocktail will be a touch sweeter than the cranberry juice.  Tailor it to your taste.

The Tree Item Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz. Brugal Extra Dry White Rum
  • 1 1/2 oz. Peach Schnaps or Apricot Brandy
  • Top Up with Cranberry Juice or Cocktail
Place all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into a Martini Glass and garnish with an orange zest.

     It has some of the notes of a cosmo, but it is uniquely scrumptious.   Try one of these, they are simple and tasty.   ;o)
