I like to take classic cocktails and shake them up a little. This recipe is based upon a quality Scotch Cocktail called the Automobile. Here is a link to the original recipe on the internet cocktail database: Automobile Recipe.
My recipe is only very loosely resembles this classic, and I call it, Romantic Traffic.
2 oz aged Barbados Rum
1 oz Bombay Blue Sapphire Gin
1 Tablespoon of Orange Curacao
dash of bitters
Mix all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
In case you are wondering about the name, it is also the name of a song by a Canadian “new wave” band called “THE SPOONS“. The song is kind of funky like this cocktail.
