Not to be confused with the author, here is the Doctor Cocktail:
- 2 ounces Jamaican rum
- 1 ounce Swedish Punsch
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
Shake in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.
Salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, rum and lime – some things just go together. Such is the case with the Doctor Cocktail.
This is a tribute to rum and lime. The drink has only three ingredients – those two with the addition of the rum-like Swedish Punsch.
I used fresh lime juice and I found the drink to be too sour. Then I remembered I had made up some simple syrup, so I added just a small amount (about 1/4 ounce) and that made all the difference. It offset the lime and resulted in a nice drink that kind of reminded me of a margarita.
Rating: 4/5, with the simple syrup added.
