davis cocktail

1/2 Jamaican Rum (1 oz Smith & Cross)
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth (1 oz Noilly Prat)
2 dash Raspberry Syrup (1/2 oz)
Juice 1 Lime (1/2 oz)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
After the Siesta, I turned to Hugo Ensslin's Recipes for Mixed Drinks and spotted the Davis Cocktail. The recipe reminded me a bit of the Quaker Cocktail with a Scofflaw (minus bitters) feel to it. The Davis Cocktail began with the Jamaican rum's funk aroma that was colored on the fruity side by the raspberry and perhaps the lime. The sip was a balance of the rum's caramel notes and the tart lime juice, and the swallow began with the potent rum and ended with raspberry flavors and a dry finish.
