Day Six... Dragon's Heart
Today's celebratory drink takes a little turn from the normal holiday cocktail because the date warrants a very special drink. We find ourselves in the Year of the Dragon on a historical date that we will never see again, this triple digit match up of dates - 12/12/12 - is supposed to be a very lucky day and the drink for such a significant occasion should be equally significant.
The Dragon's Heart (created by New York City mixologist Ektoras Binikos) combines Ron Abuelo 12 Anos Rum, mezcal, Domaine de Canton, blood orange juice, lime, and your choice of either elderflower cordial or a mint-citrus syrup. Needless to say, that is a lot to put into a single glass, but for a once-in-a-lifetime day (or any other day for that matter) it is worth it because it is one very fine cocktail.
