The Recordbreaker, my signature cocktail

What I learned in the making of The Recordbreaker Signature Cocktail Recipe:

  • Never, ever, ever use bottled lime juice.
  • The Record-Breaker recipe makes a very strong drink. Approach with caution.
  • Don’t skimp on the cherries. Luxardo cherries are a serious luxury and so very, very tasty.
  • If you want to order a bottle of Orgeat from Wilks & Wilson, you can buy it locally in Indianapolis, or send an email to Include a reference to “Break A Record With Susan,” or “The Record-Breaker cocktail” and they’ll get a bottle to you.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
