Cruzan 9

Looking for a mixed drink recipe for the Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum, I found the following in an old Indiana Beverage Journal - aka the 'Beverage Bible'.  BEAMIXOLOGIST - Bobby "G" Gleason Mixes....

He describes the Cruzan 9 Spiced rum as "On the nose it's vanilla forward with caramel and spice.  The sweet, aromatic rum also has allspice, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger, mace, pepper and juniper berries that combine to create this smooth, easy drinking rum."

Swizzle #9 is the name of the drink.

1-1/2 parts Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum
1 part Cruzan Aged Dark Rum
1 part orange juice
2 parts Simply Apple fresh pressed apple juice
1-1/2 parts fresh lemon sour

Build over crushed ice in order in a tall or Hurricane glass and swizzle.  Garnish with a half moon slice of orange on the rim and a dusting of fresh ground nutmeg.

Now, doesn't that just simply sound tasty!  Thanks Bobby!

Crown Royal Black

It seems as if cranberry juice has made it's way into a number of drink recipe's these days.

When I was at the Brickyard 400 in Indianapolis, there was a drink made with Crown Royal Black.  It also contained Sprite and Cranberry juice.  I do not remember the name of the drink, but it was very tasty!


Thought I'd share this interesting recipe that I found on a bottle of Candoni Moscato D'Italia, which is a sweet white wine from Italy.

2 oz chilled Moscato Candoni
1 oz Triple Sec
1 oz Cranberry juice
Fresh squeezed lime to taste
Shaken & served up!

Doesn't that just sound delicious!
