This is another Cuban classic named after the town of the same name. The recipe was created by a Cuban engineer named Pagliuchi and an American engineer named Jennings Cox in the late nineteenth century. The story goes that in Cox's storeroom there were only rum, limes and sugar. They mixed these elements in a shaker with ice and thus a classic was born....

1½ oz. Light Rum
1 oz. Simple Syrup
¾ oz. Fresh Lime Juice

Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

A Peach Surrender

a peach surrender

Ok...sorry for the long delay :) Here is a nice little drink to get us back on a roll..It's sort of like a cross between a Tequila Sunrise & a Fuzzy Navel.... It's got a nice taste to it and I'm sure you like it. You can vary the amount of orange juice to suit your taste.

2 oz. Peach Flavored Vodka
½ oz. Peach Schnapps
4 oz. Orange Juice
1 oz. Grenadine

Add grenadine to an empty collins glass and add ice. Add the liquor and then the orange juice. Garnish with a maraschino cherry. Enjoy!
