First off this is not a beer. This is a ‘Brass Monkey’ cocktail which I shook the bejesus out of until, when poured, it had a frothy beer-like head and an amber hue, hence Brass Monkey Beer. Delicious.
I made this cocktail when we were anchored near “James Bond Island”, exploring the beautiful karsts and hongs in Phang Nga Bay, Thailand…. I know it should have been a martini, but heck there’s always time for that later.
Brass Monkey Beer is easy…
- Divide six ice cubes between two scotch glasses.
- Into a cocktail shaker add:
2 shot of dark rum (we used Captain Morgan)
2 shot of vodka
about one cup of orange juice
and a couple of ice cubes
3. Shake it vigorously for minute and pour into the two scotch glasses.
The result should be amber in colour and have a frothy head… Brass Monkey Beer!
