el sistema

1 oz Santa Teresa 1796 Rum (Diplomatico Riserva Exclusiva)
1/2 oz Famous Grouse Scotch
1/2 oz Averna
1/2 oz Vanilla Gomme (1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup)
1/4 oz Crème de Cacao (Tempus Fugit)
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass (cocktail coupe), and garnish with freshly grated chocolate.

Two Sundays ago, I returned to the Hawthorne's bar bible and spotted the El Sistema created by Caitlin Hoey circa 2017. The drink's menu subtitle of "to the salutatory power of the classics" referred to the program in Venezuela that began in 1975 where impoverished children were taken off the streets and taught classical-based music.This program was so successful in saving the lives of countless youths that it was spread worldwide. To top off that tribute, the rest was a delightful sounding dessert Flip.
El Sistema greeted the senses with chocolate and dark rum aromas. Next, a creamy chocolate and caramel sip launched into rum, Scotch, chocolate, and vanilla flavors on the swallow with a herbal finish.
