3/4 oz Wray & Nephew Rum
1/2 oz Creme de Cacao (brown)
1/2 oz St. Elizabeth's Pimento Dram
1/2 oz Ginger Syrup
2 dash Mole Bitters
1 Egg (*)
Shake once without ice and once with ice. Double strain into a Tiki mug filled with crushed ice. Top with extra crushed ice, add a straw, and garnish with Fee's Whiskey Barrel Bitters.
(*) Note: the original drink, the Jamaican Bobsled, lacks an egg. To make this, omit the egg, dry shake, and fine straining step.
For my second drink two Tuesdays ago at Drink, I asked bartender Joe Staropoli for an egg or egg white drink. One of his drink ideas caught my attention -- it was the Flip form of a drink I had heard mention of on Facebook or Twitter called the Jamaican Bobsled. With a pair of Jamaican rums joined by chocolate and spice notes, it sounded delicious, but I queried if I should have it the original way instead. Joe convinced me that I ought to try it as a Flip to fulfill with my initial urge.
