Urban Twilight Cocktail

Happy Thursday and welcome to Ladies Night at The Slow Roasted Italian.

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the love of my life, Chad (I call him Mr. W - short for Mr Wonderful).  My Mr. W has been working on perfecting the most fabulous cocktail for me.  I have it say it is amazing!!!

Have an incredible Thursday and I will see you tomorrow!

Hi to all the readers of The Slow Roasted Italian, I am really excited to share this drink with you.  My cocktails tell a story and reach all of your senses, this one is no exception.

This drink resides where the daylight ends and the darkness begins.  In that one hour… the hour of possibilities, where is it not day or night…where anything could happen.

Urban Twilight lets you know you’ve arrived on the scene, that you’re now part of something greater than yourself; you are part of the city. Dressed to the nines, headed to that exclusive club, where unknown adventures await you, the night is just beginning.

This sultry and seductive drink boldly caresses your palette as it fills you with the warm glow and anticipation of a first meeting. The spiced and dark rums mingle with the bright amaretto energy, mixing day and night in one inviting drink.

Urban Twilight tastes and sounds like Whitesnake’s “Still of the Night”, a classic that will leave you begging for more.

Urban Twilight 
2 ounces spiced rum (I used Capt Morgans Spiced Rum)
1 1/2 ounces amaretto (I used Disarrono)
1/2 ounce dark rum (I used Myers Dark Rum)
2-3 ice cubes

Add the first 3 ingredients and fill the rest of the glass with Coke (or Pepsi - we use Pepsi One) within 1 inch of the top.  Add ice cubes and enjoy!
