TOOLS :: Shaker

GLASS :: Double Old Fashioned

EXTRAS ::  Lime wedge & Mint for garnish

SERVINGS :: 1 cocktail


  • ½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice (No Roses Lime here ~ go fresh or forget it)
  • 2 oz. Aged Rum
  • ½ oz Orgeat syrup (otherwise known as Almond syrup ~ Torani’s is great)
  • ½ oz Orange Curacao
  • ¼ oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 cups crushed ice


Add ice to shaker. Add all liquid ingredients. Shake it like you mean it! You need to really blend those ingredients together, so shake for about a minute. Pour shaker contents into cocktail glass without straining. Garnish with lime wedge or wheel and mint sprig. Make sure to give the mint sprig a good slap on the palm of your hand before adding to the cocktail to release the aroma and flavor.
