hoti hoti

1 1/2 oz Pyrat Rum
1 oz Lime Juice
1 oz Grapefruit Juice
1 oz Velvet Falernum
3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth
2 dash Absinthe

Build in a Collins glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Top with 4-5 dash Angostura Bitters and garnish with a grapefruit slice.
After Brick & Mortar, I headed up Mass Ave to have dinner at Russell House Tavern. For a drink, I asked bartender Trevor Christian for the Hoti Hoti on the menu created by Robert Sanford. Despite the Swizzle format, the structure reminded me a bit of the Jet Pilot, so I was definitely excited to try out this flavor combination. Once prepared, the Hoti Hoti shared a grapefruit and clove bouquet. Next, a fruity sip from lime, grapefruit, and grape notes led into rum, clove, and anise flavors on the swallow.
