rhum dandy shim

1 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth
1/2 oz Rhum JM Blanc
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 tsp Cane Syrup (JM Rhum)
2 dash Absinthe

Build in an Old Fashioned glass. Stir with crushed ice and garnish with grated lime zest.
Two Saturdays ago, we began the cocktail hour by making the Rhum Dandy Shim from the The Art of the Shim book. The recipe was crafted by Craig Lane at Bar Agricole in San Francisco back in 2010 by making a lower proof version of a Rhum Dandy. Once mixed, the freshly grated lime zest contributed wonderful citrus oils to the aroma. A lime and grape sip then gave way to a grassy rhum flavor that blended elegantly into the absinthe notes. Overall, the Rhum Dandy Shim came across like an absinthe and vermouth-tinged version of a 'Ti Punch.
