I know, I already extolled the virtues of Groundhog Day last year around this time.  But the great thing about Groundhog Day is that it always comes around again!  Why not have a cocktail do-over? This year, I’ll be serving up my version of Sweet Vermouth with a twist, and doing my best Needlenose Ned impression.  How will you be celebrating?

Sweet Vermouth with a Rum Twist

1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth

1 oz rum

.5 oz lime juice

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Lime peel for garnish

Mix liquid ingredients in a shaker, then strain into a rocks-filled glass.  Garnish with lime peel and think of Rome- the way the sun hits the buildings in the afternoon.
