Spiced Rum & Ginger Ale at Tuck Shop
Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe.
This week: The Spiced Rum & Ginger Ale at Tuck Shop.
The Phoenix spot's no-ego approach to comfort food and drink is obvious, especially on a Wednesday when there's an all night drink special offering $3 selected cocktails, $2 cans of Kiltlifters, and $5 glasses of wine.
Did someone say $3 cocktail? Oh, yes and we aren't talking low grade liquor and Canada Dry here. Tuck hand crafts their own ginger ale and tonic water to create specialty cocktails that give a head nod to 1920 and '30 classics.
The Spiced Rum and Ginger Ale uses Crusoe Organic Spiced Rum , which gives off notes of cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg.
(recipe after the jump.)
1 1/2 oz Crusoe Organic Spiced Rum
3 oz hand crafted Ginger Ale
(Ginger ale recipe consists of agave nectar, lemon zest, lemon juice and a tad bit of cinnamon)
In a rocks glass combine ice, spiced rum and ginger ale. Garnish glass with a lime. Sip to lose your ego and feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
