Sidewinder’s Fang

We just got the new book from Smuggler’s Cove, and it’s a treasure trove of classic and new tiki recipes. This was one of our favorites from the book, and with only 6 ingredients, it’s fairly simple by tiki standards.

The “fang” here must be the tart bite of the lime – there’s a lot of it! But it works to balance the sweetness of the syrup and the dark rums, and all together the whole drink is like a sweet, effervescent lime candy.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except for the sparkling water) with ice. Pour unstrained into a wine glass, large snifter, or short glass. Top with the sparkling water and add more ice to fill.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
