Beverage Monday

Dia de los Muertosimage courtesy of MexicanSugarSkull.com

This is a little late, but it is the Day of the Dead. The day when Latino cultures celebrate their family that has passed on. I decided to make a play on this by featuring drinks of skulls and bones.

Skull

1/3 shot Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/3 shot Bailey's® Irish cream
1/3 shot Old Grandad® bourbon whiskey

Mix ingredients and serve in a shot glass.

Skin & Bones

3 oz Captain Morgan® Original spiced rum
7 1/2 oz Coca-Cola® Diet Coke
1/2 oz lime juice

Pour rum into an old-fashioned glass, and add coke (in the same fashion as a rum and coke). Add a squeeze of lime juice, and serve.

Dancing Bones

1 1/2 oz dry vermouth
2 tsp gin
2 tsp cherry brandy

Pour vermouth, gin and cherry brandy into a mixing glass half-filled with ice cubes, and stir. Strain into a cocktail glass, and serve.

Cheers,
