Little Princess Cocktail

I have had a growing appreciation for sweet vermouth combined with rum. But this drink cemented it. Very simple--half and half rum and sweet vermouth. A dry drink but with nice, smooth flavor.

This will be a new favorite of mine, I think.

1.5 oz sweet vermouth (Martini & Rossi)
1.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver)
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Try this similar cocktail from the Savoy Cocktail Book. I'm not really sure why it's called the Apple Pie. Quite tasty, all the same.


Apple Pie Cocktail

1/2 Bacardi Rum (1 1/2 oz Flor de Cana White Rum)
1/2 Italian Vermouth (1 1/2 oz Cinzano Rosso)
4 Dashes Apricot Brandy (2 bar spoons Vedrenne liqueur de abricot)
2 Dashes Grenadine (1 bar spoon home made Grenadine)
4 Dashes Lemon Juice (Juice 1/4 lemon)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass
