Okay, so I thought this was a wintry drink, due to where it was in the book, as well as its name. It is not. This also marks the last use of the raspberry syrup (may it rest in peace) that I made a while ago. A poor last use, in my opinion.
While I could probably find a lot of news about white people, or talk about the movie Lion which is getting a lot of Oscar buzz and is a movie I really want to see, instead I found this story first, so here goes. In Japan, two animal handlers were mauled by a lion from Shonan Animal Production, a company that owns animals for use in film and television. Unclear as of yet if this was provoked, or just lions being lions. After all, they are wild animals.
176. White Lion.
(Use small bar glass.)
- 1½ teaspoonful of pulverized white sugar.
- ½ a lime (squeeze out juice and put rind in glass).
- 2 oz Santa Cruz rum.
- ½ teaspoonful of Curaçoa.
- ½ teaspoonful of raspberry syrup. [As always, here.]
- Mix well, ornament with berries in season [they weren’t, really, so I forgot], and cool with shaved ice.
BN: I don’t like this… It’s very alcoholic tasting. In general, all of the flavors are good but it’s just way too boozy for me. (Can I say that, with my name?) The sweet lime aspects of it are good, and as always I think it could use a touch more raspberry syrup. Maybe if it was fully blended I could like it, sort of like a frozen margarita? And, I will say that although it looks very odd, sticking the lime rind in there does give you a nice fresh scent of lime when you go to drink.
PiC: I like it. I don’t mind that it’s boozy and I like the lime-ness. It’s weird that it’s listed as a wintry drink, though.
