Cocktail Hour: The Fog Horn

Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 11, 2016

Ray Bradbury is one of my favourite writers. His most famous work is the Martian Chronicles which was published in 1950 as a series of loosely connected short stories chronicling the exploration and colonization of Mars. Primarily a short story writer, Ray Bradbury published several more of these loosely connected short story collections. R is for Rocket, S is for Space, The Illustrated Man and Dandelion Wine, are some of my more favoured selections.

Fog Horn SAM_2707Bradbury’s stories ran the gamut from hard science fiction to horror fantasy, often with the two disparate genres colliding in wonderful ways. The inspiration for one of these stories came when he saw the ruins of a broken roller coaster on a California beach which suggested to him a dinosaur skeleton. In conceiving how the monster came to be washed up on shore, Ray Bradbury was inspired to write, The Fog Horn, a haunting tale of a lone sea monster who mistakes the sound emanating from a remote lighthouse as a call from one of his own kind.

Famous Newfoundland Screech Rum is blended in Newfoundland and Labrador, a Canadian province very familiar with the isolated setting of Ray Bradbury’s short story. Thus The Fog Horn serves as the inspiration for my latest cocktail recommendation which mixes Famous Newfoundland Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum with fresh Orange and Lime juices and a touch of Campari.

The Fog Horn

2 oz Screech Spiced 100 (Proof) Rum
3/4 oz fresh Lime Juice
3/4 oz fresh Orange juice
1/8 oz Campari
1/2 oz Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Orange Peel

Add the first five ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake until the out side of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a thin strip of orange peel

Please Enjoy Responsibly!
