La Lampara

March 8, 2010

Aniversario rum
Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot Liqueur
lemon juice
agave nectar
chunk of orange (peel-on)

Muddle the orange chunk, shake ingredients and fine-strain into a champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine, and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Okay, the origin of this name is very convoluted: It started out as a variation of the Range classic Third Rail, so we wanted a name that somehow related. Since Aniversario rum is from Venezuela, we decided to use Spanish, and since one of our servers (Alejandra) is Venezuelan, we asked her for advice. She suggested "La Lampara" because it's a Venezuelan term which literally translates to "lamp" but is the equivalent of "third wheel" in English. Good enough!
