Midnight Express

I caught a bit of Martha Stewart's show over the weekend. Disturbingly, she had Mo'Nique on the show, who insisted that when it comes to the recipes in her cookbook, "I like meat, baby." She kept calling Martha "baby", which was just wrong. But by far, the worst part was when Martha made a whiskey sour. Of course, it being Martha, she has to rim the glass with turbinado sugar and garnish with a dried candied orange wheel. But she shook the drink in a shaker with ice and then poured the whole thing right into the glass. No straining over fresh ice. I guess she likes her whiskey sours pretty on the outside, but watery and with broken half-melted ice on the inside.

Anyway, back to Mr. Boston. Our next drink is a daiquiri variation made with dark rum. Quite nice, and more interesting than a regular daiquiri. But not very photogenic, it appears. Made me take a blurry picture and all.

1.5 oz Dark rum (Myer's)
.5 Triple Sec (Dekyuper's)
.75 oz lime juice
splash simple syrup
splash lemon juice

Shake with ice and strain (you hear that Martha? Strain.) into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.
