Nine-O-Six (solar eclipse cocktail)
The #totalsolareclipse hits tomorrow and apparently Oregon is the first place to experience it! "They" are saying it's going to be crazy, with millions of people flooding the freeways and city to don blacked-out paper glasses and stare up at the sky.
I’ll be sitting in my driveway at exactly 9:06am (the exact time the eclipse is supposed to begin). It might be too early for a cocktail at that point but I’ll mix one of these up later…
1 oz blackstrap rum
1/2 oz blended rum (i used Eclipse, because duh)
3/4 oz Kashmiri Amaro
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz Falernum
1/2 oz Demerara syrup
3 dashes barrel aged bitters
Garnish: dehydrated blood orange wheel
Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a snifter filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a dehydrated blood orange wheel.
