Surprised Cocktail Recipe

Generally speaking, northern European countries are more inclined to drink Kummel, which is a caraway-flavored liqueur. There are few times when it shows up in cocktails, but the result is excellent when it does. We think the surprised cocktail is one of those recipes, and it is definitely a fascinating experience to drink it. Mix kummel with rum and orange juice for this drink, and add a hint of pimento dram for a bit of spice. The cocktail was originally made with Jamaican rum, a spirit that tends to have strong flavors that can stand up to the distinct flavors of kummel, caraway, and other herbs found in it. A little citrus adds a nice contrast, and the cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and nutmeg of the pimento dram round it out. If you try this cocktail for yourself, you will see that it is a great cocktail, and you can even edit it a bit to make it your own.
