Well it’s after midnight, but I haven’t been to bed yet…so it still counts as Monday right? Ok then.
Today’s drink is called “A Day at The Beach” and for good reason as it’s a very tropical themed cocktail. I didn’t have the necessary ingredients for the garnish, but the color still delivers here. A powerful red-orange makes for a brilliant presentation. Smelling of amaretto and OJ it’s a very inviting cocktail. The drink starts sweet with orange, moves quickly to a little almond/amaretto flavor and finishes on the great taste of coconut rum. It certainly reminds me of a relaxing day at the beach as there is hardly any bite at all. This is a perfect drink for those looking for a sweet summer cocktail.
Overall Rating 8/10
Alc. Taste Rating: 2/10
Make it again? Yes, actually a little too sweet for the menu, but a great one to suggest on a hot summer day.
