No limits

 Today’s recipe (from Brooklyn Bartender again) almost looks like two different cocktails to me, one heading in a Tiki direction with the rum, lemon and grenadine, while the other tends more in the classic cocktail direction with the rye and cognac.  I admit, this dichotomy appeals to me — who doesn’t feel a little split sometimes (don’t even get me started on the election…)?  While I have a fondness for the Tiki culture, generally speaking they are just too sweet for me.  But I like some kind of sweetness to balance the strong of a good spirit.  This drink had a good level of sweetness, but too much sour for my taste. I did like the different spirit flavors, though; you could really taste the different flavors of the rum, cognac, and rye.  I might try this again with a bit less lemon.  

PS: My prep area is clearly getting a little crowded; it’s time to step up production!
