"Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice" Cocktail

Yum. My Friday just got a whole lot more interesting. I just put this little concoction together and I'm currently sipping on it right now. I hope to love myself a bit more by the end of this post. Or end of this drink. 

So I used my homemade spiced rum and my lemongrass syrup as the basis of this cocktail. I added a few more ingredients to make this "Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice" cocktail.

Here's what you need for this cocktail (the cocktail shaker and the jigger are optional):

The jigger is a helpful measuring tool for making cocktails but you can use a small liquid cup measurer or your can eyeball the amounts if you wanna walk on the wild side.

I like my cocktails ice cold and I also like imagining myself as a bartender from Coyote Ugly, so I use a cocktail shaker. If you don't have one don't let it stop you from making this cocktail. Just stir the ingredients (as you tell yourself James Bond didn't know shit about cocktails) and pour over ice.

If you're using a cocktail shaker, now would be the time to fill it up with ice.

Next add lemongrass syrup (sugar), spiced rum (spice), Pom Hula and splash of water (everything nice). 

Finally, just to brighten the whole thing up, add the juice of half a lemon.

Shake.

Pour.

Enjoy.
