Leading Role, post Oscar cocktail

“And the winner is . . .”

Leading Role horiz

Here’s a late (and final) entry for our round of 2014 Oscar cocktails. The ingredient list was an idea from one of our twitter followers, @MBennett117. Kraken is a very dark rum loaded with cinnamon and ginger; like an Oscar winner in a supporting role, the Kraken brings memorable spice to the mix.

“I would like to thank all the Academy members and my mother….”

2 ounces Buffalo Trace Bourbon
1/2 ounce Kraken Black Rum
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 ounce Fentiman’s Ginger Beer
Orange slice

Muddle rum, bitters and orange slice in a heavy-bottomed old-fashioned glass. Add several ice cubes or one very large ice cube. Pour in bourbon and ginger beer. Stir. Enjoy.

Tasting notes: Complex, spicy and soothing. A delicious sipper.
