frequent flier

1 1/2 oz St. Teresa Rum
1/2 oz Cynar
1/2 oz St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Angostura Orange Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass filled with ice. Top with ~2 oz ginger beer, garnish with an orange twist, and add a straw.

For Andrea's first drink at Brick & Mortar, she asked bartender Kenny Belanger for the Frequent Flier. The recipe was created by Kenny's fellow bartender Phil MacLeod who we met shortly after he started working behind the bar at Green Street around October of 2011. With aged rum, Cynar, allspice liqueur, lime juice, and ginger beer, it would have tempted me for my next round if Andrea had not ordered it first.

The orange twist's oils greeted the nose and led into a carbonated lime and caramel sip. Next, the rum, ginger, and allspice filled the swallow; the Cynar's herbal notes were harder to detect in this mix, but it probably worked rather well to support the aged rum.
