2 oz Gold Rum (Plantation Dark)
1/4 oz Fernet Branca
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/4 oz Lime Juice
Shake with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with a lime wheel.
My post-shift drink two Fridays ago came by way of Punch Drinks with a winterized Daiquiri called Davy Jones's Locker. With Fernet Branca in the mix, it reminded me of the Dirt'n'Diesel, but drink creator Brad Farran utilized Donn's Mix (two parts grapefruit juice to one part cinnamon syrup) instead of the other drink's Cynar and demerara syrup. Once shaken and strained, the Davy Jones's Locker gave forth lime, grapefruit, and lightly menthol aromas. Next, grapefruit and caramel on the sip led into dark rum on the swallow with a cinnamon and menthol finish.
The euphemisms are getting a bit stale, suffice to say: four people in Boston -- two of whom are much more prolific writers than the other two (including the originator of this blog, who has no excuse apart from laziness) -- who drink and tell.
