2 oz Blackstrap Rum (Cruzan)
1/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)
Juice of 1/4 Lime (~1/4 oz)
2-3 dash Angostura Bitters

Build over ice in an old fashioned glass.
The Corn'n'Oil is a drink that Brother Cleve recommended to us last year but we never got around to making one. Since the drink appears on the Anvil's 100 drinks that everyone should try at least once list, it was time to tackle this one. The drink started out with a great clove and cinnamon nose from the falernum and Angostura bitters, respectively. The Corn'n'Oil had a great blackstrap molasses taste at first, but the molasses notes began to fade with successive sips while the lime juice became more noticeable. Overall, the drink functioned like a spiced rum sour with Embury proportions on the alcohol-to-other ratio. With the Corn'n'Oil crossed off the list, 24 remain (I also had a Hemingway Daiquiri and a Pink Gin but decided to just enjoy them without blog entries).
