Everyone should invent a cocktail on their birthday. What a way to start the day right?
Yesterday morning, the eleventh day of the eleventh month of the eleventh year of the century, I celebrated my birthday with a cocktail at 11 minutes past 11.
For my birthday, The Koala bought me a bottle of Stolen Rum in gold. I first had this rum at Taste at the Cloud in a cocktail called Stolen Summer. It was delicious. Stolen Summer is STOLEN white rum infused with Manuka wood smoked Apricot, Peach and Nectarine, fresh lime and ginger beer.
I’m still experimenting with Hakanoa Ginger Syrup at the moment so I thought why not pair them together?
Stolen Eleven Eleven
1 shot Stolen Rum (or any smooth golden rum)
1/2 shot Hakanoa Ginger Syrup
A squeeze of lemon
A lemon wedge
A sprig of mint
Add the rum, ginger syrup into a glass of your choice. Top with a squeeze of lemon juice and ice, a sprig of mint and lemon wedge. Sip in the sun.
