dusty trail

2 oz Privateer Silver Rum
1/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup
2 dash Bittermens Mole Bitters
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a rocks glass.

Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I decided to do the Chef's Whim at Craigie on Main. Of course we opted for sitting at the bar, and we were greeted by bartenders Ann Thompson and Jared Sadoian. For a first drink, I asked Ann for the Dusty Trail which seemed like a cross between a Rum Old Fashioned and a Pirate's Cocktail (a/k/a Rum Manhattan). Moreover, the concept was similar to Jamie Boudreau's Chet Baker, but instead of a rich Jamaican rum, they opted for a white local one -- Privateer.
Rum and vanilla mingled elegantly on the Dusty Trail's nose. A light grape and vanilla sip led into a rum, vanilla, and chocolate swallow.
