We stayed at the MGM and that is where Cable Car and I began our torrid affair. Now, as many know, I am also a Captain Morgan aficionado. So if you give me a martini where the primary ingredient is Captain Morgan, I’m a VERY happy gal.
So, if you are a lover of all things rum and out of the box, why not give it a try…
1½ ounce (or 2 oz.) Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
¾ ounce Orange Curacao (or 1 oz. Cointreau)
½ ounce Fresh Sweet and Sour or Fresh Lemon juice.
For the Rim:
Orange Peel for garnish
In an ice filled mixing glass, add the above ingredients, shake until well blended.
Strain into a Martini glass that has a “caramelized rim” of raw sugar and cinnamon.
Serve with a garnish of an orange spiral.
*To rim the glass, moisten the edge of the glass with a lemon wedge, dip the glass into the mixture of cinnamon sugar and let dry for 3-5 min while you mix the cocktail.
Also – you might have to add a bit more Captain Morgan to taste.
