Golden Glow

Golden Glow belongs to a semi-tropical series of "Glow" drinks that seem more about the color and enjoying your whiskey or gin than drinking Caribbean rum. They are nice, if slightly sweet, cocktails that will please many punch drinkers offended by a heavy liquor presence like those in Manhattans.

Golden Glow is juicy and fruity, and it relies on dark liquors for their vanilla character that might otherwise be provided by almond extracts, should you want to make this non-alcoholic. But lets try not to offend serious drinkers either and make it with the full liquor portion for now.
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. dark rum
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar syrup
  • dash grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
