(*)Original recipe in the video was just "overproof rum"; see text below for explanation.
After the Smoke & Mirrors, I turned to another Paul McGee creation from Lost Lake that appeared in a video on Chicago Magazine. Besides always being game to try one of Paul's recipes, I am a sucker for drinks with Swedish punsch and passion fruit -- a combination that worked rather well in the 1937 Puate's Delight. The video only mentioned "overproof rum," but I was informed on my Instagram post that the rum was overproof rhum agricole. With that came the explanation that the GFY did not stand for "Go F*** Yourself" or the corporate office-appropriate version "Good For You!", but for "Go French Yourself." Indeed, a pair of French spirits, Calvados from France and rum from Martinique, provide the backbone for the GFY.
