Fair And Warmer

The weather is fair and it is getting warmer. What a time to break out this cocktail. This is on an upstairs window ledge of my restaurant in Old Town Alexandria. The Fair And Warmer is a rum-rich Martini variation with lots of kick and flavor. The cocktail avoids falling to too sweet or too dry with the addition of merely a few dashes of curacao. I used Vitae orange liqueur from Charlottesville, Virginia. This bittersweet liqueur and classic sweet vermouth is all that is needed for this simple warmer weather drink.
  • 2 oz. light rum 
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3 dashes white curacao (Vitae orange liqueur used)
  • lemon twist
Combine all ingredients except twist in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the twist.
