Food Network Summer Soirée: Pirate’s Booty Call Cocktail #SummerSoiree

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve participated in Food Network’s Summer Soirée. Not because I didn’t want to, but because I just had too many other things on my mind. This week’s theme, however, could not be missed. Summer Cocktails – it was almost made just for me. Let’s get this party started!

While I’m a big fan of craft beers–in particular, the deep, dark ales that are full of flavor–in the summer, I’m more likely to order a fruity concoction. It just seems fitting for the time of year. A tropical destination for the mind, while my feet are firmly planted here in Torrington.

Pirate’s Booty Call is based on a cocktail I discovered when I first started celebrating International Talk Like A Pirate Day. It combines spiced rum with amaretto, peach schnapps, orange juice, and cranberry juice for a smooth, sweet treat. It’s not the prettiest of colors, I know, but don’t let that dissuade you. Shiver me timbers! With this drink in your hand, you’re guaranteed calm seas ahead.
