1/4 wineglass Bacardi (2 oz Santa Teresa Claro)
1 dash Lime Juice (3/4 oz)
2 dash Grenadine (1/2 oz)
2 dash Green Crème de Menthe (1/4 oz Tempus Fugit White)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass; I garnished with a mint leaf.
Two Sundays ago, I ventured into the Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 book and spotted the Lewiston that came across as a Bacardi Cocktail with the addition of crème de menthe. Once prepared, the Lewiston conjured a berry and mint nose. Next, lime and berry notes mingled on the sip, and the swallow proffered rum and pomegranate flavors with a mint finish.
