Brass Monkey, Galliano cocktail

There’s a lot going on in this tall drink: The rum masks in part the vodka; the orange juice provides a big citrus cushion; and the Galliano float offers a elusive flavor that brings it all together.

Brass Monkey Brass Monkey full vert
4 ounces orange juice
1 ounce vodka
3/4 ounce light rum
1/4 teaspoon Galliano

Pour the orange juice, vodka, and rum into an ice-filled collins glass. Stir several times. Float the Galliano on top.
