Leading Role, a tweeted Oscar cocktail

“And the winner is . . .” Here’s a late (and final) entry for our Oscar round of cocktails. The ingredient list is an idea from one of our twitter followers, @MBennett117. Kraken is a very dark rum loaded with cinnamon and ginger. This recipe will appear as a featured post with photos next week. (Thanks, Matt!)

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

Leading Role
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.
