Nevada Cocktial

One of those boring "state" drinks. That's not to say that the drinks are boring, but the states they are named after seem to be. You don't hear about a California Cocktail, or a Colorado Cocktail, but for some reason Nevada and Montana have unusually richly flavored drinks named after them. Grapefruit and lime juice offset the heavy dark Kraken rum I used to make this drink. It also made the cocktail dark and a little ominous, like a prairie thunderstorm.
  • 2 oz. dark rum
  • 2 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • sugar syrup
  • dash bitters
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
