“Nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose.” — Mary Shelley
Yes, and tonight my steady purpose will involve a bottle of Brinley Gold Lime Rum and a glass. I plan on an evening chock full-o tranquility!
Now, here is what makes this drink unique to Baristaville, Brinley Gold Rum is a locally owned company. They are also the co-sponsor of the BOOO-ristanet Halloween Ball. I generally don’t like my booze straight up, but this rum is so smooth that I have enjoyed a nip or two, sans mixers, without making a face like I downed lighter fluid.
- Brinley Gold Lime Rum
- Grapefruit juice pink or regular
- Selzer water
- One Lime
In a glass, pour one shot of Brinley Gold Lime Rum, two parts grapefruit juice and two parts seltzer over ice and gently mix. A squeeze of lime is nice but not necessary. You can also stir this in a shaker with ice and strain into a glass. If you want the funky green color add one drop of yellow food coloring and a tiny drop of green food coloring. Yields one drink.

Nellie was the winner of Name that Blackberry Lemon Cocktail with “Bye, bye Blackberry” and I owe JG a drink at the BOOO-ristanet Ball.
You can make these at home this weekend or try them at the BOOO-ristanet Ball as one of the drink specials. All it needs is a clever name (not Frankenlime that is too easy) and let’s hear your favorite Frankenstein quote.
