All of the elements of a great tasting cocktail are inside the Naked Lady. Your sweet comes from the rum and grenadine, the sour from the apricot and lemon and the aromatics of the vermouth. The result is a delicious cocktail that will turn heads.A note on the recipe: It is rare that you come across a drink made up of 1/5 of a part, don’t let this scare you off from trying it. You can think of the rum and vermouth being a full shot (1 1/2 oz) each with an extra 2/5 of a shot and each of the other ingredients measured out to 1/5 of a shot (equivalent to a few dashes). Read more about measuring “parts”…
