bring me the horizon

1 oz Denizen Aged White Rum
1/2 oz Plantation Original Dark Overproof Rum (Plantation OFTD)
1/4 oz Zacapa Rum
1/2 oz Cocchi Vermouth
1 tsp Don's Spices #2 (1/2 tsp each vanilla syrup + Hamilton's Allspice Dram)

Stir with ice and strain into a small wine glass (Nick & Nora glass).
Two Wednesdays ago, I turned to Tom Sandham's 2012 World's Best Cocktails for a nightcap. There, I spotted in the rum section a recipe from Brian Miller that was aligned in spirit (albeit not in appearance) with the Tiki the Snow Away event that month. Brian created the Bring Me the Horizon for the Tiki Mondays with Miller nights at Lani Kai in Manhattan that ran from 2011 until the bar closed in 2012. Overall, the recipe reminded me of a 3-rum Pirate's Cocktail that substituted Don's Spices #2 for the bitters. Once prepared, the Bring Me the Horizon shared a rum funk, vanilla, and allspice nose. Next, caramel and grape mingled on the sip and led into the rum medley accented by allspice and vanilla flavors.
