Cocktail Wednesdays: The Fury

The Fury Cocktail

This week, we honored the man who brought the Avengers together -- Nick Fury -- by trying The Fury Cocktail.

The Fury Cocktail

1 oz Vodka
1 oz Spiced Rum
1 splash Sweet & Sour Mix
2 oz Orange Juice

In a whiskey glass with ice, add Vodka, Spiced Rum, splash of sour mix, then top off with orange juice.

Rather than buying sweet and sour mix, I made a little on the spot. It's easy! And I could even use fresh squeezed juice. With the small amount I made, shaking was enough to dissolve the sugar, but if you make a larger batch, you should heat the water and sugar together.

Sweet and Sour Mix

3 parts water
3 parts sugar
2 parts lemon juice
2 parts lime juice

The verdict: This is a rather tropical drink -- probably not the sort of thing that Nick Fury would drink. It's a pretty decent drink with the main flavors being the rum and the orange juice. I think I prefer the similar Black Eyed Susan, which is a taller drink that also includes pineapple juice (and orange liqueur!). A summery, tropical drink, but not really our style -- especially not Scott's.

  1. Mmmm. Fury-appropriate or not, that sounds tasty and refreshing. I might try it with some citrus-infused vodka....
