We’ve all had our hearts broken a time or two and have probably crushed a few hearts along the way as well. We can all agree that no matter which part you play, the feeling (for lack of a better expression) completely sucks! Instead of wallowing in your misery, get back on your feet, and make yourself a drink to celebrate! You’ve got a fresh start and there’s no sense in wasting it by feeling sorry for yourself… okay.. I’ll allow you to throw a Pity Party for 20 minutes, but after that you’ve got no excuses! Aside from love advice, my Valentines Day gift to you is this refreshing new Heartbreaker cocktail! It’s sweet and crisp with a smooth finish from the Sailor Jerry that will make you forget all about the dirty scoundrel or rotten sea wench that broke your heart in the first place! 😉
(makes 1 cocktail)
1 1/2 oz Sailor Jerry Rum
3/4 oz grenadine
Juice from half a lemon (about 2 Tbs)
1 tsp sugar
Maraschino cherry for garnish
Combine Sailor Jerry Rum, grenadine, lemon juice, and sugar in a cocktail shaker and shake several times until mixed. Strain into an ice filled glass, top with club soda, garnish, and serve!
