ti' punch fizz

2 oz La Favorite Rhum Agricole Blanc
1 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Demerara Simple Syrup (1:1)
1 1/2 oz Cream
2 dash Tiki Bitters
1 Egg White

Shake without ice and then extensively with ice (2 minutes). Add 1 oz of soda water to a highball glass and double strain the drink on top of that. Pour 1 oz of soda water into the shaker, swirl, and strain on top of drink. Add a spoon straw and a lime twist.

Last Wednesday, I went down to Drink in Fort Point when Andrea was in French class. For my first drink, bartender Tyler Wang wanted to make me a drink called the Ti' Punch Fizz that they had recently come up with. The Fizz was created by Drink's own Ezra Star (who apparently also invented the Bijou according to Wikipedia) by taking the classic Ti' Punch and giving it a Ramos Gin Fizz-style treatment.
The Fizz's aroma was initially dominated by the lime oils from the twist. Flavor-wise, the sip was a sweet creamy lime flavor, while the swallow was a smoothed out rhum agricole taste that finished clean and dry. The lime and rhum agricole were muted by the cream and egg white, and it was noteworthy how well these flavors complemented each other.

Time-traveling Ezra Star!

Indeed! A lot of the Drink staff are accomplished time travelers as this Bostonist post shows (there were at least 3 others instances that we found that the article failed to mention).

Great wikijoke!
Anyways, nice looking drink.
I can tell a lot of work when into that one.
