Miami Cocktail

It's pretty. But the Miami cocktail is really a bad idea for a lot of reasons. One bar guest described it as "That feeling you get when you have citrus after brushing your teeth." That's a bad sign. And it should be a signal that any mint schnapps and lime drink is a bad idea from the outset. Then again, there's a time and a place for drinks like this.

Picture a Daiquiri drinker during the holidays looking to sweeten his drink with peppermint. Not convinced? I'm not either.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. peppermint schnapps
  • 1/4 tsp. lime juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. (Note: a mint garnish as shown looks pretty.)
