the rummy tum tum

Behold the new holiday drink: THE RUMMY TUM TUM. We had a whole bunch of rum we inherited from bygone parties and we are not really rum drinkers so Ryan decided he wanted to use some of it. Hot buttered rum didn’t sound appealing to him and he had the idea of only using ingredients we had on hand, or “McGyver-ing,” to make the drink.  With what was in our fridge and pantry he came up with this nifty little cocktail for your holiday needs.

Pictured above is the beautiful Mrs. Reedy enjoying a rummy tum tum and looking festive and fabulous as usual!

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup cider
  • 1 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tbsp light rum
  • 1 tbsp 151 (rum)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp rye whiskey
  • the juice of 3-4 slices from a mandarin orange
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a little fresh grated nutmeg
  • a dash of ginger
  • twist of orange peel and cinnamon stick for garnish, and maybe another little bit of nutmeg

In a shaker add all of the ingredients (except the garnish of course). Shake well without any ice. Add a few cubes of ice and shake again. Pour into a glass. Garnish and enjoy.

Thanks to the mix masters at Bar at Braun Court for the suggestion of adding citrus and dry shaking the ingredients before adding ice and shaking again.
