Cocktail of the week – Between the Sheets

17 Feb

I mean, who names these cocktails? Seriously.

Despite the ambiguous name, this is a really delicious cocktail. Previously the COW’s have been long, thirst quenching drinks. That’s a technical name by the way “long drink”. So this week I decided to give a classic grown-up cocktail a go.

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add 1 nip white rum*, 1 nip brandy, 1 nip Cointreau, 1 nip lemon or lime juice. Shake! Strain into martini glasses. Garnish with lime. Drink. Be careful not to operate heavy machinery.

*I have to confess that I didn’t have any white rum, so I added coconut rum instead. It gave it a lovely holiday feel. I’m quite positive that using white rum would be just as delicious but not as exotic.

        This is going to sound strange. I had just checked your blog and this post wasn’t here! And then when I went to check that “blogs I read” thingy on wordpress this one was all “Whoomp here I is” and I realized you must have posted it when I left your site. Also after the explanation I just gave it doesn’t seem like a sneak attack, actually.
