repository of hopes and dreams

1 oz Dos Maderas 5+5 RX Rum
1 oz Punt e Mes
1/2 oz Giffard Orgeat
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
For a second drink at Estragon, I asked Sahil Mehta for the other recipe that caught my eye that night, a Daiquiri of sorts sweetened by orgeat and embittered by Punt e Mes and Angostura. For a name, Sahil called this one the Repository of Hopes and Dreams after something he heard in shiatsu massage class. Once built, the drink gave forth almondy aromas that colored the lime and grape sip to follow. Finally, the swallow was a delightful combination of rum, nutty, and bitter flavors.
