- 1 oz vodka
- 1 oz 151 rum
- 1 oz orange juice
- 1/2 oz each Midori and Chambord
Michael and I had a couple of these last night. I did not make it with the 151 rum. It was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away that I last did 151 rum, and I'm in no hurry to repeat it. I do not mind it in my zombie, but that's about as far as I go.
The drink was a little "heavy". The orange juice (not fresh squeezed, unfortunately), Midori and Chambord combined to make it a little cloying on the palate, especially the one that used the cane sugar rum that Michael brought over after their trip to Tortola. So mabye the bite of 151 would have help cut it a bit. But they went down without too much complaint, and I think I can recommend it as a pretty decent drink. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars.
