- 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.
