Look Out Below

Any drink that has 1.5 oz of 151 rum in it should be immediately suspect. It tries to warn you in many ways, much like colored poisonous insects do--the name is ominous, the 151 cap has one of those weird flame-proof thingies on it, and although this is a cocktail glass-sized drink, you are instructed to serve it on the rocks.

I have NEVER been so drunk so quickly on one cocktail before. Beware.

Oh yeah, taste? What taste? I was too busy going "Hoo-HAH!" and wheezing to poll the tastebuds. The lime and grenadine are just trying to take the edge off.

1.5 oz 151 Rum (Bacardi 151)
.25 oz lime juice
1 tsp grenadine (homemade)

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.

Holy crap!

Amazing. Someone invented that. Next thing you know they'll be putting an olive in everclear and calling it a alcotini.

(I once tasted straight 151, so I have an extremely good idea of a) what the drink must taste like and b) why you were wheezing.)
