Happy Hour: Corkscrew

My first nip of a Corkscrew elicited a "yum!" but had I examined the ingredients beforehand, I might have thought "yuck." Rum isn't really my liquor of choice, and peach liqueur plus dry vermouth just sounds like a bad combination.

You're right Yum, I probably would have had the same reaction if I heard the ingredients before! But I might have to try it if you say it blends well.
