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.

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

Jen,

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.
