While doing my intensive research on the French Aphrodisiaque cocktail, I noticed that the link trace at the top of the page included “Boissons Aphrodisiaques” (aphrodisiac drinks). Being naturally curious on this topic, I clicked on the link and scanned the list of cocktails. Nuit de Folie (night of madness) caught my eye. That sounded like fun, so I clicked through. The recipe is fairly simple with only three ingredients: grapefruit juice (I used white), rum, and framboise. They specify Havana Club Cuban rum, which is not available in the
Nuit de Folie (with acknowledgement to 1001cocktails.com)
2 oz light rum
1 oz grapefruit juice
.5 oz framboise liqueur
Combine ingredients with cracked ice in a shaker. Shake friskily while thinking of Emmanuelle Béart. Strain into the cocktail glass. This cocktail can use some color, so garnish with a maraschino cherry. Get ready for the night.
