1 1/2 oz White Rum (Privateer Tres Aromatique)
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup
1/4 oz Benedictine

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe pre-rimmed with lime salt (microplaned lime zest with salt).
Two Fridays ago, I was lured in by a recipe on Punch Drinks called the Rainmaker. This Rum Sour was crafted by Alec Bales at Atlanta's Ticonderoga Club and featured pineapple syrup and Benedictine as the sweeteners; while the citrus balancing that was lemon, there was a lime aromatic as part of the garnish tying it slightly to a classic Daiquiri. Once prepared, the Rainmaker donated a rum, lime, and pineapple bouquet to the nose. Next, lemon and pineapple notes on the sip trickled into rum, pineapple, and herbal flavors on the swallow.
