#DrinkOfTheWeek: Ladies Night

It might be a little early to break out the Tropical  Cocktails, but I was just in one of those moods…..

Ladies’ Night is a Rum Punch that is sweet, fruity and tasty, and yes, gentlemen can just as easily enjoy this drink. You can add bitters to this drink if you like, although I chose not to. The level of sweetness of this cocktail depends on how much Grenadine you choose to add, the more, the sweeter of course.


What you’ll need: 

2 oz Captain Morgan (Quality spiced rum of your choice)1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice (I squeezed my own)
Splash of Grenadine
Fresh lime juice

One trick: shake the rum with a slice of lime with ice in a shaker, then pour over ice and add the remaining ingredients. Makes it even more delicious.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
