The second drink that bartender John Mayer made for me at Local 149 from his Bacardi competition recipes was a rum and sherry Bijou-like drink. For a name, I thought of the beach near the bar in South Boston. A few blocks away on Castle Island, the government built Fort Independence which was a hotspot for ghost activity in the 19th century. In fact, when Edgar Allen Poe was stationed there in 1827, he heard the local lore about how an unpopular officer was bricked up alive in the fort following his killing of a more popular officer in a duel; this tale led Poe to later write "The Cask of the Amontillado." Since the drink has sherry in it, I figured the "Ghost of Castle Island" was a good place holder of a name as any.
