The Midnight Express cocktail

Midnight Express cocktail

Midnight Express


  • 1 1/2 oz. Dark Rum
  • 1/2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 3/4 oz. Lime Juice
  • 1 Splash simple syrup
  • 1 Splash Lemon juice

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.

I doubled the above recipe because I only have double old-fashioned glasses.

The Midnight Express is a very tasty drink. I used Gosling’s Black Seal Rum. This was the first time I had ever tasted Black Seal Rum and I love it !

At first the lime juice seems a little over powering but then, the rum flavor comes through with a semi-sweet finish. The rum has a deep, rich flavor that pushes through and leaves a lasting impression. I would recommend  this cocktail to anyone who  enjoys a good rum.
