Aloha! Today i’m going to continue with the cocktail videos with my other submission to the Angostura Global Cocktail Challenge 2016.
This drink is on the Freestyle Cocktail category where I have as requirements the use of at least one dash of Angostura Orange Bitters and no more than 6 ingredients. I could select the distillate that I prefer to use in that cocktail…and, of course, I decided to use RUM!!!!
I used Angostura 7 Years Old Rum, with a dash of Angostura Orange Bitters, and then, I tried to complement the flavor and aroma of the bitters with the other ingredients, making more tasty and subtle the bitterness in the cocktail.
The name of the cocktail is Alani Lā, in hawaiian language it means orange sun, that’s an indication about the moment and the place where you could enjoy this short drink: a sunset in a paradisiac hawaiian beach. The orange reflect the flavor, the aroma and the color of the cocktail, and the garnish (a rounded orange twist) makes us think in an orange sun.
You could find the recipe on the video…but I also do for you the printable recipe…as I use to do in the blog:
- 2oz Angostura 7 years old rum
- ½oz Dry Curaçao
- 1oz Orange Juice
- ½oz Passion Fruit Syrup
- ⅕oz (1 barspoon) Coconut Cream
- 1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters
- Shake all ingredients with ice.
- Serve double strained.
- Glass: Coupé (medium size).
- Garnish: Rounded orange twist.
I hope you could enjoy your next sunset with my drink!!!!
