Back at the ranch, we do a lot of mixology with Black Squirrel aged spirit and compare the results to those same recipes using popular and craft rums, whiskeys, and other spirits. I know, I know... You're saying, "That's how I spend my Saturday nights, too!" We are all awesome. Except at Black Squirrel we call the experimentation days "Monday", and there are notebooks involved.
As you will know from reviewing *your* notes, Black Squirrel stands up really well to citrus, just like an aged rum. While our favorite mixer is still just ice (cubical or spherical), when you get adventurous it is virtually impossible to overload it with citrus. Here are some of our favorite recipes featuring those ingredients.
A spin on the classic 'Dark & Stormy'. Black Squirrels, especially Carl, would rather not be at sea, given their species and history with powerboats.
A delicious daiquiri that comes to us from Matt at Allen Burger Venture in Buffalo, NY. Inspired by the old man himself, we'd like to think that Hemingway would have cast aside his other bottles for ours in this delicious twist on an old favorite.
On sunny days and balmy nights, you could opt for a Mojito, or you could go native with a twist on the classic.
What better way to ward off scurvy than a big bowl of punch?
