the bloodborne of beverages

1 oz Rhum Agricole (Rhum Clement Premiere Canne)
1 oz Campari
1 oz Jagermeister

Stir with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.
Two Wednesdays ago, I was skimming through the Kindred Cocktails database and became intrigued by the Bloodborne of Beverages. The recipe was crafted by Natalie Weizenbaum of Seattle in 2017, and the combination of rhum agricole and Campari reminded me of the Sleeping with Strangers with Jägermeister here instead of Swedish punsch and grapefruit bitters. In the glass, the Bloodborne of Beverages met the nose with a rhum funk, orange, and ginger bouquet. Next, caramel with hints of orange on the sip passed into grassy-funky rhum, bitter herbal, and orange flavors on the swallow.
