Your light rum cocktail recipe.
1 ½ oz. light rum
1 oz. Strega
½ oz. white crème de cacao
1 oz. cream
Cardamom bitters to taste
Glass: Cocktail, rimmed with white chocolate powder.
Method: Shaken over ice & strained.
Garnish: Dust with nutmeg.
I came up with this during the Halloween season one year. Strega being the Italian word for witch, it was a natural. I chose light rum as the base simply because I like rum and think vodka is overused.
- The drink may sound overly sweet to some, and I won't lie... it's definitely sweet. But the bitters (I use Scrappy's cardamom bitters) can balance it out nicely. Strega being a digestif, this is meant to be a dessert drink, anyway.
