371 Vintage Vinyl, Campari Kraken And Bitters For Hipsters

371 Vintage Vinyl, Campari Kraken And Bitters For Hipsters

All of us in here at ZTL have been traveling after the holidays.  Pumpkin just returned from a Caribbean cruise and wanted another Dirty Shirley.  Normally we wouldn't be sipping such a drink in our tiki bar, but we let her have what she wants just this one time.  1.5 oz Vodka, .75 oz grenadine (we used real homemade pomegranate syrup) and 4-5 oz lemon lime soda are a nice combination when and only when combined correctly in the right amounts.  Sunshine kept to his palate and enjoyed a Hemingway Daiquiri.  You can click for the recipe and the story behind the classic cocktail.
