Lurking just below the surface of an unsuspecting Milwaukee suburb lies The Black Lagoon Room; a mind-blowing Tiki bar in the basement of Pete Klockau and Katie Monachos. They Spilled The Beans for us last summer, and were kind enough to create a couple of cocktails for us, utilizing our Midnight Sun cold brew blend. Behold the "Glenn or Glenda?" and the "Twist of Cane" (Oh Yeah)!

Black Lagoon Room

The "Glenn or Glenda?" (L) and the "Twist of Cane" (R)

The "Glenn or Glenda?"
This one has more "traditional" Tiki drink elements with the addition of lime, sugar, coconut, and curacao.
-2 oz Coruba Dark Jamaican Rum
-1 oz Punt E Mes Vermouth
-1 oz Coconut Syrup (I use a 1:1 ratio of 1/2 cup each simple syrup and coconut milk + 10-15 drops of rose water)
-1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
-1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
-3/4 oz Glassworks Cold Brew
-1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
The "Twist of Cane"
This is a lil' riff on a Rum Manhattan, incorporating cold brew and some other fun stuff...
-1oz Lemonhart 80 Proof Demerara Rum
-1 1/2 oz Plantation 5 Year Rum
-1/2 oz Cynar amaro
-1/2 oz Punt E Mes Vermouth
-1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
-3/4 oz Glassworks Midnight Sun Cold Brew
-Heavy Dash Angostura Bitters
-Light Dash Angostura Orange Bitters (float)
