Bottoms Up: Three Favorite Phoenix Rum Cocktails
(Photo above: The Dark & Stormy cocktail at J&G Steakhouse is the perfect late-summer cooler)
(by Dawson Fearnow with Phoenix New Times) Crisp, citrus-y and mixed liberally with ice, a nice tropical tipple is the perfect late-summer cooler. Here are three Valley bars serving up great rum cocktails.
1. The Dark & Stormy at the J&G Steakhouse at The Phoenician
J&G's serves up a delectable Dark & Stormy made with Goslings Black Seal Rum, John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum, Stewart's Ginger Beer and fresh lime juice.
2. The Mai-Tai at Hula's Modern Tiki This classic Mai-Tai is made with Appleton Estate special gold rum, pineapple juice, orange Curacao, orgeat syrup and lime juice.
Suck down your third cocktail after the jump.
3. Rustyfarian at Citizen Public House
The Rustyfarian is an award-winning cocktail crafted with Zacapa dark rum, Drambuie, a medley of orange, lemon and lime juices--all garnished with lemon-lime zest.
