3/4 oz Crème de Cassis
3/4 oz Lime Juice
Shake one round without ice and one round with. Strain into a cocktail coupe and garnish with five drops of Angostura Bitters.
For Thursday Drink Night on Mixoloseum, the theme was "Dark Rum," but the bottle that called out to me for inspiration was not a rum, but a liqueur -- Crème de Cassis. Something about its dark, rich berry flavor made me think that it would pair up nicely with a dark rum. When I started thinking about what other drinks I have had recently with this liqueur, the Diablo came to mind, and I wondered what a dark rum, Crème de Cassis, and lime combination would taste like. Perhaps influenced by the Farewell Flip from the night before, I decided to go the egg route.
