6 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
3 ounces white rum
1 ounce maraschino liquor
Note on ingredients: I used a rum locally distilled in Boston by Bully Boy Distillery. This rum felt special to me, not a cheesy Bacardi kinda thing. It tasted great too, which a real depth of sugar flavor. Turns out is made with Molasses. Maraschino liqueur is a clear liqueur made with Marasca cherries. Luxardo is the most common brand. Now that I have purchased a bottle I am anxious to try other recipes with it, because it is a nice addition to cocktails - kind of thick like a syrup, sweet, with a slight almond flavor, and a real sharp burn as well.
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake until combined, strain into any kinda glass you want. Garnish with either grapefruit or lime slice.
