Tonights Cocktail: The Irish Wake

wpid-img_20150610_013003.jpg

The Irish Wake

1 oz Bacardi Superior

1 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

Orange Juice

.5 oz Blue Curacao

.25 oz Bacardi 151

This is the signature cocktail at my Irish bar. First, you fill the glass with ice, then you put the rum and OJ in. Then, swirl the blue curacao around the top so it will evenly sink to the bottom. Float the Bacardi 151 on top and garnish with a lemon. This drink packs a serious punch. If done correctly, it should appear green. It took me a few tries to get the green color to show through, the trick is not putting too much blue curacao in, and making sure that it disperses evenly before floating the 151. I have learned through experience that it does not work with pineapple juice, though it does taste good.
