Quarter Deck Cocktail, and Poker Cocktail
I seem to have skipped a page of P's in the rum section, which I'll have to go back to. So pardon me if my alphabetizing is out of order.
Anyway, I shamelessly changed this recipe from a stirred cocktail to a shaken one in honor of my new Boston shaker. Look at the frost on the steel part! Woot.
I originally was going to make a Poker Cocktail, but not that long ago I had a Little Princess cocktail, which was also equal parts sweet vermouth and light rum. The only difference between them in the Mr. Boston's Guide is that the Poker is stirred, and the Little Princess is shaken. I didn't think that the difference would be enough to warrant another try, so on to the Quarter Deck.
I appreciate the cream sherry in this drink. It is definitely the dominant flavor in this drink.
.5 oz cream sherry
1.5 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)
.5 oz lime juice
Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
