metro century

1 1/2 oz Plantation 3 Star White Rum (Privateer Tres Aromatique)
1/2 oz Cocchi Americano
1/2 oz White Crème de Cacao (Bols)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Orange Bitters (Angostura Orange)

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Tuesdays ago, I was scanning the Hawthorne bar bible when I spotted Jackson Cannon's rum riff on the 20th Century. He dubbed this variation the Metro Century, and the menu subtitle was "light rail to light speed." In the glass, the Metro Century proffered a funky rum and chocolate aroma. Next, lemon and orchard fruit notes on the sip flew into rum and chocolate flavors on the swallow with a lemon finish.
