sonic sunset

1 1/2 oz El Dorado 3 Year White Rum (Privateer Silver)
1/4 oz JM Rhum Agricole Blanc (Clement Premiere Canne)
1/4 oz Blume Marillen Apricot Eau de Vie (Shalakh)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Simple Syrup
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a mint leaf.
Two Wednesdays ago, my copy of Jupiter Disco: Preservation zine that I purchased in 2020 to help the bar out during the shutdown finally arrived. For an inaugural drink, I opted for the Sonic Sunset by Maks Pazuniak at Brooklyn's Jupiter Disco in 2017 for a Daiquiri riff seemed like it would be perfect aid for my constitution. In the glass, the Sonic Sunset opened up with mint, apricot, nutty Maraschino, floral, and lime aromas. Next, lime with a vague fruitiness on the sip progressed into grassy rum, apricot, cherry, and anise flavor on the swallow.
