tailor of panama

1 1/2 oz Aged Rum (Ryan & Woods Folly Cove)
3/4 oz Lillet Blanc (Cocchi Americano)
1/2 oz Cynar

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass rinsed with oloroso sherry (1/4 oz Lustau) and containing a large ice cube. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Two Wedensdays ago, I searched through the additional recipes for the November/December Imbibe Magazine issue on their website. The drink that called out to us was the Tailor of Panama from Jenn Agg at Toronto's Black Hoof. I have to assume that the aged rum Jenn uses is Panamanian, but the only rum we have owned from Panama, Ron de Jeremy, was only a small sample and now is gone. In its place, I reached for Ryan & Wood's Folly Cove Rum that they make up in Gloucester, MA.

The lemon twist added to the sherry's grape and nutty aroma. The rum and Cynar's caramel richness worked well with Cocchi Americano's wine and hint of citrus on the sip. Finally, the rum, sherry, and Cynar's bitter notes filled the swallow.
