Nutty Like a Fruitcake
This tiki twist on the familiar flavors of fruitcake comes from Mindy Kucan at Hale Pele in Portland, Oregon.
Orange and spice are always a welcome addition to our holiday cocktail menu, and Nutty Like a Fruitcake makes us think of holidays spent drinking rum with the uncles, listening to stories into the wee hours of the night.
- 1½ parts Demerara rum or Aged rum or Dark rum
- ½ part Spiced rum
- ½ part Orange curaçao or Shrubb
- ¼ part Allspice dram
- 1 part Orange juice
- ½ part Lemon juice
- ¾ part Orgeat
- 1 dash Aromatic bitters or Mole bitters or Orange bitters or Creole bitters or Tiki bitters
Shake all ingredients with crushed ice. Pour unstrained into a tall glass or festive tiki mug. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and a wheel or twist of orange, studded with a few cloves.
