Romantic Traffic

I like to take classic cocktails and shake them up a little.  This recipe is based upon a quality Scotch Cocktail called the Automobile Here is a link to the original recipe on the internet cocktail database:  Automobile Recipe.

My recipe is only very loosely resembles this classic, and I call it, Romantic Traffic.

Romantic Traffic

2 oz aged Barbados Rum
1 oz Bombay Blue Sapphire Gin
1 Tablespoon of Orange Curacao
dash of bitters

Mix all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

In case you are wondering about the name, it is also the name of a song by a Canadian “new wave” band called “THE SPOONS“.  The song is kind of funky like this cocktail.
