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.
