Peg o’ My Heart

Named for an early 20th century play, not only is this drink deliciously tart and crisp, but depending on the brand of dark rum you use (we use Kraken, of course), the color should come out to a beautiful rusty brown-red.

2 oz Dark Rum

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tbsp Grenadine

Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker two-thirds filled with ice, shake well, and strain into a cocktail glass.

While grenadine may seem like a costly and unnecessary addition to your home bar, Jacquin’s makes a perfectly passable grenadine that can be had for around $10 a bottle and comes in handy for a wide variety of classic cocktails.
