Squid Mixes: Castor's Gold
A Castor's Gold combines light rum, honey syrup, lime juice and horseradish. I got the recipe from The One-Bottle Cocktail by Maggie Hoffman who in turn credits Adam James Sarkis of Phoenix Cocktail Club in Milwaukee. The drink is named for Nicholas Cage's character in Face/Off.
This was my first experience with double straining, I assume to keep the little bits of horseradish out of the drink. I will confess that I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to horseradish, even going pretty light on the wasabi with my sashimi. Here, I have to admit that it made for a rather exciting drink. Mind you, the scant quarter-teaspoon goes a long way.
