Royal Z Club Pink Nibbles

According to my wife, this one has a little tiny bite to it, which is where I found the name for this drink. Of course, it’s entirely possible that someone else has made a similar drink and that it has another name– I did a cursory search, found nothing, and ran with the ball.

Chalk the little nibbles up to the generous dose of ginger flavor and the spicy bitters. More importantly, though, it’s a sweet, cool breeze on a hot summer day.

Ingredients:

1 oz of Domaine De Canton
1/3 oz of Ciroc Vodka
2/3 oz of Seven Tiki Spiced Rum
Tspn of Grenadine Syrup
Tspn of Fee Brothers West Indies Falernum
5 drops of Angostura Bitters
2-1/2 – 3 oz of grapefruit juice

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker, fill the shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a large martini glass. Garnish with whatever citrus fruits you happen to have around the house. If you find it too sweet, dial back the falernum and grenadine to taste.

Note: don’t settle for Rose’s Grenadine. It adds sweetness without adding flavor– either buy a good grenadine syrup (like Monin or Sonoma, for example) or make your own from one of the recipes easily available online that has both the flavor and the color to finish off your drink properly.

I have a feeling that this one might serve as the basis for a few variations. It’s easy to make and tasty with enough alcohol to be effective.

    I originally read that as “Royal Z Club Pink Nipples” which made the opening sentence much more interesting. Which also made me think I was reading the category wrong & it actually was labeled “Boobz”.

    But I applaud your scientific spirit; tossing in liquids to create an infusion & then imbibing it yourself – instead of sending it to a lab – to determine its properties & effects. Now that’s what America is all about. Damn shame we don’t live in America anymore…

    My regrets on not getting back to ya sooner. I’d like to hear that idea you mentioned a while back – it’s just a question of scheduling. Drop me an e-mail & I’ll see when I can free up some time for ya.

      Heh. That’s exactly what I had in mind when I wrote it. My mind was in the exact same space– which should frighten you a bit.

      Anyway, I’m traveling a bit over the next few months; when I get back, I want to have a meeting of our little group of friends to discuss my idea. Not sure that we have the financial wherewithal to do what I’m thinking, but I’d hate to let the idea go unexplored.

      Hope you’re doing well.
