fog cutter

Once again, Christina Barruetta comes to the plate with another wonderful concoction. Love this gal!!!

The Fog Cutter is a classic tiki drink, a deceptively easy-sipper that hides a punch of rum, brandy, and gin. This version is from one of my favorite cocktail books, “101 Tropical Drinks”, by Phoenix’s Kim Haasarud, who is also a James Beard-honored mixologist and co-founder of Arizona Cocktail Week. It’s even better made with fresh juice from Arizona-grown lemons and oranges.

2 oz fresh orange juice
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1-1/2 oz silver rum
1/2 oz brandy
1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz orgeat
1/4 oz sherry as a floater (I like to use amontillado)

Shake all ingredients except for sherry, strain, and serve in a tall glass filled with ice. Float sherry on top and garnish.
