around the world

1 oz Ron Zacapa Rum (Zaya)
3/4 oz Blanc Vermouth (Dolin)
3/4 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Swedish Punsch (3/4 oz Kronan)
1/4 oz Simple Syrup (Omitted)
1 dash Fee's Peach Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with edible flowers or not.

Two Saturdays ago, I turned to Sanctuaria: The Dive Bar of Cocktail Bars to help start the cocktail hour. For a drink, I spotted the Around the World; its rum, Swedish punsch, and orange juice components reminded me of the classic Tanglefoot save that its lemon juice was replaced by blanc vermouth here.
The Around the World shared a dark rum aroma with a fruity undertone. A caramel sip possessed a degree of smoothness from the orange juice, and the swallow began with dark rum flavors followed by tea and spice notes and a peach finish. Overall, the libation was very drinkable perhaps due to the orange juice and sugar content easing the rough edges.
