After the Tailor of Panama, we were still in a rum mood, so I suggested the Hair of the Lion from the North Star Cocktails book created by North Star Bartenders Guild's Adam Harness. The drink is a rum and egg white version of the classic Bourbon-based Lion's Tale. I always found the original's call for Bourbon to be odd as the other ingredients suggest a rum-based Tiki number; in addition, Bourbon and lime never seem as natural of a pairing as rum and lime (or Bourbon and lemon) do.
