Cocktail Hour: Crimson Cane

Posted by Arctic Wolf on May 31, 2017

Here is a new recipe based upon the popular Scottish Whisky Cocktail, Blood and Sand. It came about as I was experimenting with an unusual new cherry-flavoured spirit, Wisniak na Rumie which uses Jamaican Rum as well as natural cherry juice as flavouring ingredients for the spirit. When I encountered the liqueur for the first time, I thought to myself that the spirit could serve quite well as a substitute for Cherry Heering which is of course the common cherry flavoured spirit used when mixing the aforementioned Blood and Sand.

Things came together for this cocktail when I received a sample of Mount Gay’s Black Barrel Rum. The thought occurred to me that the complexity of Mount Gay Rum parallelled the complexity of Scotch Whisky. Would it be possible I wondered, to swap out not only Cherry Heering for Wisnak na Rumie, but also to swap out Scotch Whisky for Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum.

After a bit of trial and error, I settled upon my recipe. Although a changes and substitutions had taken place, my final creation bears an unmistakable resemblance to the original cocktail. It is though a rum cocktail not a whisky cocktail, and therfore deserves its own name. I have chosen, Crimson Cane.

Crimson Cane

3/4 oz Mount Gay Black Barrel Rum
5/8 oz Sweet Vermouth
5/8 oz Wisniak na Rumie (Cherry Rum)
3/4 oz Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
ice
Orange Zest
Brandied Cherry

Add the first four ingredients into a metal shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker frosts
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with flamed orange zest and a brandied cherry
