Pink Heeler: on naming a cocktail


How does one go about naming a cocktail? I could spell it out completely leaving nothing for the imagination, or I could throw out something totally random "The Slam Dunk" and you'd just have to hail Mary it hoping you get something awesome. I'm going with a conversation starter cocktail name. The Pink Heeler. This combination of homemade cardamom syrup, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, ultra smooth Puerto Rican rum, a splash of soda and frozen cranberries to keep it on the chill evokes something on the exotic side. This drink is bright with a little spice. It has that something extra (cardamom!) that gets people talking. A perfect winter cocktail to offer home visitors and introduce a new family member: Fria, a white heeler we just adopted near Hood River. She is just a water drinker, but we'll toast this Pink Heeler to her. Cheers!
