Although one definition of a Beachcomber is somewhat negative (any loafer around a waterfront), I've always thought the term referred to a person of leisure enjoying a walk along a sandy beach. With two Rums, some Citrus flavors, and a Sugar coated rim, our cocktail will certainly get you in the mood for a sandy stroll. Bottoms up to our featured cocktail... Beachcomber. Cheers!
.5 oz Lime Juice (Fresh, or Rose's Sweetened)
.5 oz Maraschino Cherry Juice (right from the jar)
2 oz. Lemon-Lime Soda (7-Up)
Lime Wheel and/or Cherry for garnish
Granulated Sugar to rim glass (optional)
If you want to rim your glass with Sugar... moisten the rim of a chilled Martini glass with Lime Juice, and tap it into a saucer with granulated Sugar (if you want more color, you can add a few red crystals). In an ice filled cocktail shaker, add the liquid ingredients, and give it a good stir. Strain into your Martini glass, and garnish accordingly. It's a somewhat sweet, Rum and Citrus flavor cocktail, that really hits the spot. We hope you enjoy our featured cocktail... Beachcomber!
