The Queen of Tarts

     I was looking to create a new tart cocktail yesterday, and I think I have come up with one for all of us that are tired of the “sugar bombs”.    This is a flavorful cocktail that rides on the trail of a tart daiquiri.   It is a blend of some new ingredients for me and I’m happy to share this one with all of you.

Bahama Bobs Queen of Tarts

·         1 ½ oz. Barbancourt White Rhum

·         ½ oz. Bols Genever

·         ¾ oz. Dry Curacao

·         ½ oz. Sweet Vermouth

·         Juice of ½ Lime

·         2 Dashes of Fee Broz. Whiskey Barrel Bitters.

Place all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake until chilled and serve over ice in a snifter or tall tumbler.

     This one turned out very well and I think that if you are looking for a really flavorful tart cocktail, it is worth the time to go looking for all of the ingredients.  The Bols Genever is one of those magic ingredients that I have just begum to experiment with, along with the sweet vermouth to just round out the edges.   ;o)
