About this Cocktail

A spur of the moment experiment.
With maple syrup being so popular nowadays I thought I'd see if I had any...I didn't.

What I did have was black treacle; very rich in colour & flavour.

So thought I'd give it a spin.
Now it's far too thick to use normally, it most definitely wouldn't break down with shaking. So I made a 3:1 dilution using boiling water (3 parts water, 1 part treacle). The result was a flavoursome "treacle juice" (for want of a better name), which was good enough for me.

Decided to use a dark rum as the base spirit because it just made sense.

The one I made was a little too sour; more so than I wanted. I used 25ml fresh squeezed lemon juice, so I've recommended 12.5ml instead. Aside from the slight off balance, I'm happy with how this turned out; it definitely ticks the 'different' box.

Ingredients:
  • 50ml - Dark Rum
  • 25ml - Black Treacle Dilution (3:1)
  • 12.5ml - Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 2 Dash - Angostura Bitters
  • 1x Egg White
Preparation:

Add all ingredients to mixing glass.
Dry shake (one ice cube or strainer spring).
Fill shaker with ice and shake again.

Double strain into a glass & garnish with thinly drizzled black treacle.
