arrack strap

1 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum
1 oz Batavia Arrack
1 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth (Dolin)
1 tsp Campari
1/2 tsp Demerara Syrup (1 tsp Simple)
2 dash Mole Bitters
2 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Stir with ice and strain into an Old Fashioned Glass with one large cube. Garnish with an orange twist.
Last week after my Yacht Rock Sunday shift, I needed a nightcap so I turned to the Death & Co. Cocktail Book for inspiration. There, I spotted Brad Farran's 2012 creation, the Arrack Strap, that appeared like a two rum Manhattan of sorts. Once built, it offered orange and dark molasses notes on the nose. Grape with hints of orange on the sip gave way to dark rum, funky Arrack, and bitter orange flavors on the swallow with hints of chocolate on the finish.
