Happy Hour: Rum Crusta

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to try a drink called a Rum Crusta. I usually shy away from rum, but for some reason - I think it may have been the lovely sugar coated rim - this one was calling my name. It's a sweet, but sour drink, containing triple sec and lime juice, that slides down real nice. To make one for yourself, or to impress your friends with a new drink, get the recipe,

Rum Crusta

1 wedge Lemon
1 twist Orange
1 1/2 ounces Rum (Dark)
1/2 ounce Lemon Juice
1/2 ounce Triple Sec
2 teaspoons Maraschino
1 teaspoon Sugar (Superfine/Caster or powdered if you don't have superfine)

Place the sugar in a saucer. Rub the rim of a wine goblet with the lemon wedge and dip the glass into the sugar to coat the rim thouroughly, discard the lemon. Place the orange peel spiral in the goblet and drape one end of it over the rim of the glass. Fill the glass with crushed ice. In a shaker half-filled with ice cubes, combine the rum, triple sec, maraschino liqueur, and lemon juice. Shake well. Strain into the goblet.

I don't know what I love more about this - the fact that the glass pictured has about an inch-worth of sugar on the rim, or the fact that it's another drink recipe containing Maraschino!
