2 oz 12 Year Old Jamaican Rum (Appleton Reserve)
1/2 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth (La Quintinye)
1/4 oz Amaro Montenegro
1 bsp Curaçao (Pierre Ferrand)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
After work two Fridays ago, I sought out my nightcap in A Spot at the Bar and happened upon the Kingston crafted by Everleigh bar manager Felix Allsop. This was not the Daisy-like Kingston that appeared in Stan Jones' Barguide but a straight spirits one featuring orange liqueur and an amaro. Once prepared, the Kingston imparted an orange oil over aged rum aroma. Next, sweet caramel balanced by dry white wine made up the sip, and the swallow gave forth rum, orange, and tangerine notes.
