Merry Widow

Merry Widow SAM_2711

After tasting and re-examining Lemon Hart Navy Spiced Rum as part of my 2016 Spiced Rum Countdown, I started flipping through the pages of one of my  cocktail books, 1001 Cocktails (Alex Barker compiler) for a suitable cocktail to showcase the spiced rum. A recipe called the Black Widow caught my eye as it featured the unusual flavour combination of Dark Rum with Southern Comfort shaken with Sweet and Sour mix. I decided to swap out the dark rum for Lemon Hart Navy Spiced Rum.

The result is my newest cocktail, the Merry Widow.

Merry Widow

1 oz Lemon Hart Navy Spiced Rum
1/2 Oz Southern Comfort
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Ice
Twist of Lime

Place the four main ingredients into a metal shaker with ice
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a cocktail glass
Garnish with a twist of lime peel

Enjoy Responsibly!
