dove in paradise

1 1/2 oz The 86 Co. Caña Brava Rum
1 oz Coco Lopez Coconut Cream
1/2 oz Herbsaint
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a Collins glass. Fill with crushed ice, add straws, and garnish with a mint sprig.
For my first drink at the Cane & Table pop-up at Brick & Mortar on Halloween, I opted for the Dove in Paradise. I was not able to decipher how the name fit into the plot of The Birds movie theme, but I was game to try this Herbsaint-tinged Coconaut of sorts. Once prepared by Cane & Table's Sam Parrie, the Dove in Paradise shared a mint and coconut bouquet to the nose. Next, the sip shared a creamy lemon flavor that gave way to rum, nutty, and anise notes on the swallow. Overall, the combination was delightfully dry, and the Herbsaint was in good balance with the other ingredients.
