3/4 oz Old Monk Rum
1/2 oz Angostura Bitters
1 oz Cherry Heering
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.
For my second drink at Trina's Starlite Lounge, I asked bartender Emma Hollander about the Death or Glory. I was drawn to in part because of The Clash reference and because Angostura Bitters was listed third in the line up. After asking if the show position was for a reason, she confirmed that it was a bit more than a few dashes and described how bartender Beau Sturm concocted this libation. The heavy Angostura and Cherry Heering pairing reminded me of drinks like Ryan Lotz's Calabura Flip and the Hot Shot from the 1937 UKBG Approved Cocktails book.
