Key West Song Instructions

The Key West Song is a refreshing and tropical cocktail that embodies the vibrant and laid-back atmosphere of Key West, Florida. This cocktail is perfect for sipping on a sunny day or enjoying during a beach vacation. To make the Key West Song cocktail, you'll need a few ingredients and a shaker. Start by muddling fresh mint leaves in the bottom of the shaker. This will release the mint's aromatic oils and add a refreshing flavor to the cocktail. Next, add the juice of a freshly squeezed lime to the shaker. The lime juice adds a tangy and citrusy element to balance out the sweetness of the other ingredients. Now it's time to add the star of the show - rum. Key West Song calls for a light rum that will complement the tropical flavors of the cocktail. Add a generous amount of rum to the shaker to give the drink its signature kick. To sweeten the cocktail, add simple syrup to taste. Simple syrup is made by dissolving equal parts sugar and water, and it adds a touch of sweetness without overpowering the other flavors. Finally, fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously. This will chill the cocktail and ensure that all the flavors are mixed together. Strain the cocktail into a glass filled with ice and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint or a lime wedge. The Key West Song is now ready to be enjoyed. Whether you're lounging on a beach or reminiscing about your last vacation, the Key West Song is sure to transport you to the tropical paradise of Key West. So grab your shaker and mix up this refreshing cocktail - it's like a vacation in a glass!

Best served in a Highball Glass.
