Easy

This is a simple recipe based upon the Commodore (which is a whisky cocktail I happen to enjoy).  I am using rum rather than whisky which of course means that the cocktail deserves its own name.  I thought it would be fun to keep with the Commodore theme, and so I named this cocktail after a Commodore’s song called Easy.

Easy Cocktail
a cocktail by Chip (AKA Arctic Wolf)

2 Oz Amber Rum
1/4 Oz Lime Juice
1/4 Oz Lemon Juice
dash of Orange Bitters
Sugar Syrup to taste

Mix a metal cocktail shaker with ice
Shake it up until the shaker frosts over
Strain into a fancy glass of your choice
You may garnish with a small strip or two of orange peel

(By the way, I realize that the whisky cocktail was not named for the music group, The Commodores, but their song, Easy, sure fits the mood of this cocktail, especially on a Sunday morning.)
