book of lies

2 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
3/4 oz Zacapa 23 Rum
1/4 oz Smith & Cross Rum

Build in a single old fashioned glass, give a quick stir, garnish with orange oil from a twist, and serve room temperature.
Two Mondays ago, I pulled the Jupiter Disco: Preservation zine out of the frequently used book pile and spied the Book of Lies. This drink was crafted by Al Sotack in 2013 at the Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. as a reverse (room temperature) Rum Manhattan utilizing the duo of Zacapa for richness and Smith & Cross for funk that I have seen work in the Frau Holle and Desk Job. Once prepared, the Book of Lies opened with an orange and caramel aroma. Next, grape, caramel, and plum notes on the sip offered up funky rum, raisin, and orange flavors on the swallow.
