    Well, Broomie, since you’ve already got the crushed ice and need to numb the paiin have a…..:


    1 ounce light rum
    1 ounce añejo rum
    1 ounce dark rum
    ½ ounce apricot brandy
    2 ounces orange juice
    1 ounce pineapple juice
    1 ounce lime juice
    1 teaspoon superfine sugar
    1 cup crushed ice
    2 teaspoons 151° proof rum
    1 orange slice
    1 maraschino cherry
    1 mint sprig

    In a blender, combine the light rum, añejo rum, dark rum, apricot brandy, orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, and sugar with the crushed ice. Blend well at high speed. Pour into a collins glass. Float the 151° proof rum on top. Garnish with the orange slice, cherry, and mint sprig.

    añejo rum is simply “aged” rum,
    151° proof rum is rum that is 75.3% alcohol by volume
    super fine sugar is also known as caster sugar.

    The above recipe is from “The Bartender’s Bible” by Gary Regan

    1500 years old, and she never skated before?
    Why skate when you have a flying broom?
