1 oz Berkshire Mountain Distillers' Ragged Mountain Rum
3/4 oz Gordon's Gin
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
2 dash Grenadine

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
On Sunday night, Andrea and I ventured down to Green Street where bartender Derric Crothers was behind the stick. For my first drink, I requested the Kingston off of the big cocktail menu. The Kingston's aroma smelled like a very dark rum cocktail with hints of lemon; surprisingly, it was more of a molasses note than one would expect from an amber rum like Ragged Mountain. The lemon and gin flavors appeared on the swallow where their sharpness balanced the rich rum and sweet grenadine flavors at the beginning of the sip.
