Gunner’s Libation: XYZ Cocktail


1/2 oz Triple Sec

1 oz Light Rum

1 tbsp Lemon Juice

Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and serve. Best served in a cocktail glass.

As the X Games take over Aspen again this week, we decided to pour a libation in its honor. And while Bud Light is a big seller at the bars, and energy drinks — from Monster to Rock Star to Red Bull — mixed with just about any type of booze seem to keep the skittle thugs chugging, a friend recently mentioned mixing up an XYZ. Made with light rum, triple sec and fresh lemon juice, it sounds a bit summery for a winter event like X Games. But for the more “mature” crowd (read: those who prefer to watch the Games from the comfort of their couch than with the masses at the ’Milk), I’m thinking an XYZ Cocktail might be the perfect cure for the January deep freeze blues.
