the drowned god

1 1/2 oz Banks 5 Island Rum (3/4 oz Uruapan Charanda Blanco + 3/4 oz Angostura White Oak)
1 oz Fino Sherry (Lustau)
1/2 oz Crème de Cacao (Bols White)
1 pinch Salt

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Monday two weeks ago, I began the cocktail hour with a drink that I had spotted on the BarNotes app called the Drowned God. The recipe was created by Tim Hagney of Maven in San Francisco as a Game of Thrones reference for the Blackbird Bar's secret menu. Overall, the idea reminded me of a little of the citrus-free Death & Sundries. In the glass, the Drowned God conjured up rum funk and briny sherry aromas. Next, a semi-sweet white grape sip preceded funky rum, chocolate, and crisp white wine flavors on the swallow with lingering rum intrigue on the finish.
