Flipping through the Savoy Cocktail Book can be rewarding. Sometimes you find recipes for cocktails that you’ve heard of, sometimes you find unheard of (but interesting) recipes, and sometimes you find recipes that you had marked during an earlier browsing and never gotten back to. This was the case with the Bolo. It’s an interesting sounding recipe, calling for Rum and citrus, and fairly simple for the amateur mixologist to shake up for personal consumption or for friends at an Oscar party. The original
Juice of ½ Lime or ¼ Lemon (1/2 oz)
Juice of ¼
1 teaspoon Sugar (fine) or Simple Syrup
2 oz Light Rum
Add ingredients to a shaker 2/3 full of ice. Shake briskly until frost begins to form on the shaker (well, that’s the ideal). Strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a citrus wheel or a slice of strawberry. Enjoy!
