mundo perdido

1 1/2 oz Black Blended Rum (Coruba)
1/2 oz Apple Brandy (Boulard VSOP Calvados)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Demerara Syrup (3/8 oz)
1/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup (3/8 oz)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.

After Thanksgiving dinner, I reached for the Smuggler's Cove Cocktail Book for something fun to make. There, I spotted the Mundo Perdido that Beachbum Berry created for Smuggler's Cove back in 2009. The combination of dark rum and apple brandy in a Sour/Daisy format reminded me of the Sky Pilot but with a swapping of the rum and apple brandy roles and a change of the Sky Pilot's grenadine to cinnamon syrup here.
The Mundo Perdido gave forth a dark molasses-y rum aroma with a hint of apple. Next, the lemon countered the sweet caramel from the rum and syrups on the sip, and the swallow began with dark rum and apple flavors and ended with cinnamon and funky rum notes.
