Sorry I haven't been posting in a while but I've been really tied up with work. My next day off is a is October 13....
So, I promise I will have some new material posted soon but in the mean time, here's what I'm drinking tonight.
Monster Energy Drink Import (550ml/ 18.6oz can)
3.5oz Kraken Black Spiced Rum (Release the Kraken!!!)
1/2oz Homemade Cinnamon Syrup (see recipe below)
Twist of 1/2 Key Lime
Add crushed ice to a large cup (like a hurricane glass!) and drizzle syrup around ice in an inconsistent way. Pour rum over ice next, followed by th energy drink. Twist the lime and then rim the glass with the remaining piece.
1 1/4 cup water
1 1/4 raw sugar (turbinado is fine but I prefer demarara)
4-5 dried cinnamon sticks
Combine water and sugar in a saucepot and let simmer over medium-low heat while stirring until fully dissolved. Let it reduce down to about one cup of liquid. Take off heat and add cinnamon sticks. Let chill overnight and it's ready to use.
