Squid Mixes: Robson Cocktail

A Robson Cocktail combines dark rum, orange juice, lemon juice and grenadine.  My recipe comes from The New York Bartender's Guide.  I have written before that rum doesn't usually compete well with citrus but it pops out nicely here.

Grenadine, originally produced from pomegranate juice, is now more often made with black currant and/or artificial flavoring.  In mixology, it is used as much for coloring as for taste.


  1. Love pomegranate juice and grenadine in orange juice.
    Best of all love the wee kattie who is stalking the Robson !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. With softball going on, there has been no time to even think about cocktails. I'm not even managing to cook.

    1. It’s finally starting to feel like softball weather here.
