MxMo Rum: The Judge Jr.

I couldn’t help but notice that in voting for the new MxMo logo, I had to count myself among the voters who as of yet, had not participated in an event. I thought that it was time to put an end to that, so here goes.

I like Rum, I like Gin. What better than to combine the two? Reading through the Savoy Cocktail Book, I came across the Judge Jr. Cocktail. Why not give that a try?

3/4 oz rum
3/4 oz gin
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz grenadine

Sounds like it might be pretty good, except for the fact that the gin I used overpowered the rum and grenadine, and instead I might as well be drinking gin and lemon juice. Now I did just pick up a bottle of the Dry Fly gin, and since I am north of Seattle I generally am a fan of all things Washington: Starbucks, Costco, Jones Soda, etc. Plymouth would probably done better and I would up the ante on the Rum.

Anyhow, on to the next drink.

  1. How’s the Dry Fly overall? I’ve been debating getting a bottle, to support local distillers, etc., but seem to always walk out with a new bottle of Plymouth, instead.
