Orange Bomber

Day 113


Orange Bomber
3.5 shots out of 5


I'll admit it........I was scared petrified about adding peppermint schnapps to tonight's cocktail.  The last time I had a go round with it, I had made Liquid Valium......YUCK!!  That cocktail had put a bad taste in my mouth (total Cocktail Lady humor, once again) and made me push the peppermint schnapps waaaay to the back of my bar for a while.

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I have had many screwdrivers........but never had I once thought of using coconut rum in them.  HELLO!!  Never again (unless I'm out of coconut rum and absolutely have to have a screwdriver) will I have a screwdriver without it!  This cocktail has you adding peppermint schnapps to it.  The amount of schnapps added would be the absolute most I would put into this cocktail for sure.  It does not ruin the cocktail by any means, but the peppermint flavor is a bit surprising.  Kinda leaves my mouth refreshed after every sip.........which kinda, in the back of my head, reminds me of mouthwash.  Pushing that thought aside, this isn't a bad cocktail at all!

Here is the recipe for an Orange Bomber:

  • 2 oz coconut rum
  • 1/2 oz peppermint schnapps
  • 2 oz orange juice
In a short cocktail glass, fill it with ice and add all of your ingredients.  Stir them up well and enjoy!

Here's to giving peppermint schnapps another shot.  It will now find a place a bit closer to the front of the shelf in the bar.

Cheers!!
