1/4 jigger Rum (1/2 oz Plantation Panama 2007)
1/4 jigger Cointreau (1/2 oz)
1/4 jigger Lime Juice (1/2 oz)
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Our second drink last Monday was the Embassy Club from Boothby's 1934 World Drinks And How To Mix Them. The recipe seemed rather intriguing for I had not heard of the name before; then it struck me that it was a Between the Sheets with lime instead of lemon juice (note: the original Between the Sheets called for a dash of lemon juice, but it is usually made as a more modern equal parts drink). A while back I wrote about a bunch of equal parts recipes that were variations on the Hoop La such as the Between the Sheets, and I was curious as to what a change in the citrus would do.
