[rusty cadillac]

1 1/2 oz Barbancourt 8 Year Rum
1/2 oz Galliano
1/2 oz Crème de Cacao
1/2 oz Angostura Bitters
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with drops of Angostura Bitters.

A few Tuesdays ago, we ended up at No. 9 Park for cocktails when Ryan Lotz was bartending. For a drink idea, Ryan proposed a Flip that he had started working on while at the Hawthorne. Since I have enjoyed many of Ryan's Flips from his days at Lineage, I gave it the thumbs up. Since the drink lacked a name, Andrea noted the Galliano and crème de cacao that are in the Golden Cadillac and suggested the Rusty Cadillac after the overriding color of the Angostura Bitters.

The Flip offered allspice and cherry aromas from the Angostura Bitters. A creamy sip led into a rum, vanilla, and nutty-chocolate swallow. Finally, the drink ended with a lingering spice finish that contained mint-like and clove elements. In addition, as the drink warmed up, the Galliano's star anise became more noticeable on the swallow.
