Jamaica Shake

The Jamaica Shake has a name that's really fun to say. It sound's like you are asking if someone made a shake.... Ok, maybe it's not that funny. I prefer this cocktail over the Torridora Cocktail if only because of the hefty dose of bourbon with its vanilla notes. In a way, cream kind of ruins this drink, and I would rather have the bourbon and rum by themselves. Even with the cream the cocktail is hot and a little bothersome. Bourbon is the main flavor, which is nice, but better if it wasn't in a cocktail to begin with. Cream softens the whole thing, and I get that. But more needs to be done to make this a real cocktail worth it's cool name.
  • 2 oz. bourbon
  • 1 oz. dark rum 
  • 1 oz. half-and-half
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
