midnight alarm

1 1/2 oz Light Rum (Old Ipswich White Cap)
Juice 1/2 Lemon (1/2 oz)
1 tsp Sugar (1/2 oz Simple Syrup)
2 oz Pineapple Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a wine glass.

On Sunday night two weeks ago, I turned to Bottoms Up for my post-shift nightcap. There, I spotted a recipe called the Midnight Alarm that came by way of the Parker House in Boston. Ted Saucier also captured their Parker House Punch, but this one was a tribute to Paul Revere's evening ride in 1775. Given that the distillery that Turkey Shore is based off of was active during that Revere's time period, I figured that their Old Ipswich White Cap Rum would be perfect for this drink.
The Midnight Alarm greeted the senses with a pineapple and butterscotch aroma. Next, pineapple and lemon made for a refreshing sip, and the swallow offered rum and further pineapple flavors.
