2ouncesblood orange juice (from 1 medium blood orange)(1/4 cup)
1ouncemeyer lemon juice (or 1/2 ounce regular lemon juice)(2 tablespoons)
1/2ouncelime juice(1 tablespoon)
1 1/2ounceswhite rum(3 tablespoons)
1/2ouncedark rum(1 tablespoon)
about 2 ounces sparkling water
strawberry and blood orange slices, for garnish
Place the strawberries and sugar in a jar, measuring cup, or cocktail shaker and muddle until the berries are broken down and the sugar is dissolved. Add the citrus juices, then strain the whole thing through a mesh sieve, pressing on the pulp to extract the juices. Discard the pulp.
Add the rums to the strained juice, then pour into a pint glass filled with ice. Top off with sparking water, garnish with strawberry and blood orange slices, and enjoy.
This recipe makes one drink, but it expands easily to fill a pitcher or punch bowl.Taste for sweetness before serving, as fruit can vary in sugar content.I juice the citrus and add it right to the strawberry muddle, then strain the whole thing, so the measurements here are for unstrained juice, which is a bit unconventional. If your juice is pre-strained, no worries; just add a little more sugar or simple syrup to taste if you want it sweeter.I'm no rum expert, but the kinds I use here are Matusalem white rum and Gosling dark rum.All ounce measurements here are by volume.Nutritional values are based on one drink.
