Beachcomber Cocktail

Beachcomber cocktail

Tiki drinks are a class of cocktails inspired by tropical flavors usually made with rum and fruit. I'm not a big fan of really sweet drinks, so many of the tiki-style drinks aren't that appealing to me. But this more restrained Beachcomber, which features citrus and maraschino liqueur is perfect. This tart-sweet drink is perfect before a meal of freshly grilled food.

2 oz. light rum
3/4 oz. triple sec
3/4 oz. lime juice
1/8 tsp. maraschino liqueur
1/2 oz. simple syrup
Lime twist garnish

Combine rum, triple sec, lime juice, maraschino liqueur and simple syrup in a cocktail mixing glass. Fill with ice and shake until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a lime twist.
