the showdown

3/4 oz Smith & Cross Rum
1/2 oz Blackstrap Rum (Cruzan)
3/4 oz Simple Syrup 1:1
1/2 oz Angostura Bitters
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe (cocktail glass).

Two Thursdays ago, ImbibeMagazine published an Angostura Bitters-heavy recipe called The Showdown. The drink was crafted by Jeff Baumann of The Great Northern in Burlington, Vermont, as his rum cocktail inspired by the Trinidad Sour. Baumann described how it showcases "bold flavors all around that find a way to work together for a delightful balance."
The Showdown showcased a Jamaican funk, allspice, and cinnamon nose. Next, lemon and the blackstrap rum's caramel mixed on the sip, and the swallow proffered flavorful rums, molasses, clove, woody, and allspice flavors.
