Rum Randy

An updated version of the Side Car cocktail.  Feel free to double or triple to serve a bunch.  A warm and fuzzy, “welcome home from the office dear,” drink.

Size: 2 servings

1/4/cup H2O
1/4 cup PLUS 1 tbsp superfine sugar
1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
1 lemon wedge
1 cup ice cubes
5 tbsp spiced rum
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp orange curacao
2 orange peel twists


Place 2 Martini glasses in freezer to chill.  Bring 1/4 cup H2O to boil in heavy small saucepan over high heat.  Add 1/4 cup sugar and stir until dissolved.  Cool sugar syrup completely.

Stir remaining 1 tbsp sugar and cinnamon on small plate to blend.  Rub rims of chilled glasses with lemon wedge.  Dip rims into cinnamon sugar to coat lightly.

Combine ice, rum, lemon juice, curacao, and 2 tbsp sugar syrup in cocktail shaker (reserve remaining sugar syrup for another use, or for more of these).  Shake mixure until cocktail shaker becomes frosty. Strain mixture into prepared glasses.  Garnish with orange peel twists and serve.
