From Difford’s Guide comes the recipe for the Downhill Racer cocktail. Containing a lot of rum, and considerably less amaretto it is surprising how nutty this cocktail tastes. Difford’s describe the cocktail as a crowd pleaser and we more or less agree, this is a drink most people would like (as long as they are fine with the taste of almond). All that pineapple juice also creates a nice thick foam floating on top of the shaken cocktail – it actually looks quite fancy. A really good summer cocktail this one is!
1,75 oz dark rum
0,75 oz amaretto
1,5 oz pineapple juice
Shake with ice, strain and pour.
