The second it got warmer this year, I dusted off my straw bag and took it for a spin. Straw bags became a trend more than a year ago and have since been relentless – I’ve pretty much seen everyone with some kind of straw bag on their arm, from your fave influencer to my mom.
People like to say quick and easy isn’t good, but when it comes to baking it’s what I prefer. I’m the worst baker I know but also probably the largest consumer of baked goods I know, so
Okay I’m going to come clean – I made this cocktail WEEKS ago and totally forgot to post the recipe. At the time that I made it I was craving a vacation somewhere exotic but my bank account wouldn’t allow it, so I settled for the drink version of a getaways.
Welcome to the most tropical-tasting thing you’ve ever tasted.
what you need:
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 cup juiced blood orange
- 1 egg white
- 4.5 oz white rum (3 shots)
- dash of nutmeg
step one: add all ingredients to cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds
step two: remove ice from shaker with a spoon and dry shake for about a minute more
step three: pour into 2 glasses and serve
*A note on garnishes: When I make a fruity cocktail I like be extra with my garnishes. For this drink I used a “pineapple leaf” and a dehydrated blood orange (it’s homemade!) since these are the 2 juice ingredients in the drink. As a rule of thumb I always garnish based on what ingredients I used.
