Shaken Cocktails- Poisoned Oak

21 Dec

Followinf on from yesterday’s post the second cocktail in the latest Shaken Cocktails/ Cocktails by Post kit is a Poisoned Oak, again from  Trailer Happiness (and if I ever needed an incentive to visit them these two cocktails have been more the enough)

The recipe (and as always a lot more detailed and descriptive in the kit) is:

  • Juice of a lime
  • 2 level teaspoons of eucalyptus sugar (stirred into the lime)
  • 50ml white rum
  • 5ml Maraschino
  • 5ml Pomegranate molasses

All shaken over plenty of ice


The end result- wow! I thought yesterday’s was good but this was even better. The mix of sweet, sour and tangy is lip-smackingly good and the combination of flavours means it’s a drink that keeps you coming back for more. It has a real rum hit but the mix of other flavours perfectly compliments this and they are all well balanced. A winner.
