To the Islands!

Key West Cocktail
The days are getting shorter and cooler here, but that means less clouds and more sunshine.  I'm much in favor of that.  In two months this picture will bring back good memories of warmer weather.

Proportions are 60 ml of white rum, 30 ml of freshly squeezed juice from key limes, 10 ml of simple syrup, 5 ml of grenadine, 5 ml of Maraschino and a dash of orange bitters.  Everything goes into a shaker with ice.  Shaky shaky shaky until very cold.  Fill a glass half full of shaved ice (in this case a stemless champagne flute) and strain the content of the shaker into it.  Drink two and you can feel the island breezes.
