Two Wednesdays ago, I was perusing 1934's 1700 Cocktails for the Man Behind the Bar and spotted an interesting Caribbean-feeling drink that intrigued me despite its racist name. The Black Mammy paired up rum and brandy like in a good punch and paired up citrus like in Tiki drinks. I took the liberty of interpreting the clove element to be falernum to drive it a bit more Caribbean akin to the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.
