Swamp Water

I thought I'd never make this drink for myself, so when a guest asked for it at the bar, I had to take a photo. I'm not surprised that a drink with an unappealing name like Swamp Water came from Florida or Louisiana, where it is still popular. But by now there's many recipes for this monster cocktail. All of them are so sweet that there's a danger of tooth decay as well as intoxication.

Notice the toxic blue-green of this drink. If that doesn't scare you, nothing will. 
  • 2 oz. dark rum 
  • 1/2 oz. blue curacao
  • 1 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass full of fresh ice.
