In honor of this auspicious event, I’m dedicating this week’s Exotic Cocktail recipe to all the Pirates out there. Here is my own concoction,
Cap’t Mack’s Pirate Grog
In the true Caribbean manner it’s a twist on the Cuba Libre.
1 oz Sailor Jerry Rum
1 oz Malibu Coconut Rum
1 oz Dark Rum (I prefer Meyer’s)
3 drops bitters
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
sprinkle of nutmeg
Start with a shaker of ice, add the three rums, bitters, and vanilla. Shake, shake, shake Senora. Strain into a large Tiki mug filled with ice. Liquor should fill mug about half way. Fill with Coke, squeeze in juice of 1/4 lime, and two shakes of nutmeg, stir. Top with a little more nutmeg and lime wedge. Damned good grog! If you like it sweet, add a little pineapple juice to taste. Avast! And May Ye Enjoy The Captain’s Private Stock!
While you’re in the Pirate Mood, you might want to check out the Living Like A Pirate website, a fun place to go for Pirate Life party ideas, threads, treasure and more. Real nice people over there, for Pirates.
