Happy Leap Day! This month’s cocktail is one I found called the “Little Devil”. My hubby described it rightfully as an extra powerful Mike’s Hard Lemonade. The citrus flavor of the fresh lemon juice and the triple sec blended beautifully with the rum and gin. It is sweet and sour and leaves it’s mark – but not too powerful – just like you’d expect a little devil to be.
Plus the cherry is an added bonus – it gives the drink a slight devilish hue and provides something tasty to eat at the end!
1 1/2 oz light rum
1 1/2 oz gin
4 tsp triple sec
4 tsp fresh lemon juice
Yield: 1 drink
Combine all of the liquids into a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake for about 10 seconds and strain into a glass. Add a cherry to the glass and enjoy!
