After I tried out the Sidecar I got to Between the Sheets, but I think this is not a good one.
The BtS would go 1oz rum, 1oz brandy, 1oz cointreau, .5oz lemon juice.
After reading the JOY OF MIXOLOGY, which is a great book, I found out the Bolero cocktail, there it goes:
- 1oz dark rum
- 1oz brandy
- .5oz orange juice
- 1oz lime juice
- .5oz simple syrup
Shaked and strained into a cocktail glass.
Since I was out of rum, I just went for cachaça and that was a preatty refreshing cocktail. The dark rum version is also pretty good too.
The combination of juices is really cool and I think this is a very good cocktail.
I used Osbourne brandy, João Andante cachaça and Bacardi Black.
I also will leave you with a Brazilian bolero:
