C is for Clipper Cocktail

This light, easy drinking cocktail was served during the 1940s on the Boeing flying boats known as Clippers. It is a refreshing thirst quencher with more than a little bite! A sweetly balanced cocktail giving both the Bacardi and the Vermouth a chance to shine through.

Clipper Cocktail:

2oz Bacardi White Rum

2oz Dry White Vermouth

0.5oz Grenadine.

Shake all ingredients together and strain over crushed ice in a martini glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
