fair & warmer

2/3 Bacardi (1 1/2 oz Flor de Caña Añejo Oro + 1/2 oz Rhum Clement Premiere Canne)
1/3 Sweet Vermouth (1 oz Cocchi)
2 dash Curaçao (1/8 oz Pierre Ferrand)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
After I posted the All's Fair from Beta Cocktails, a reader commented that this part of the drink trilogy was probably named after the Fair & Warmer from the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book. I was able to trace back the recipe to Hugo Ensslin's 1917 Recipes for Mixed Drinks and decided to give it a go. Once prepared, the Fair & Warmer provided the nose with an orange and grassy bouquet. Next, a grape and dark orange sip sailed into rum with a hint of grassiness, orange, and plum flavors on the swallow.
