rum crawl

2 oz Aged Jamaican Rum (Appleton Signature)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/4 oz Ginger Syrup
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Sundays ago, I decided to make a recipe that Dave Stolte posted on the Instagram account for his book, Home Bar Basics, called the Rum Crawl created at Bourbon & Branch in San Francisco. The earliest reference to the drink that I could find was a 2008 mention on Yelp. After I posted it on my Instagram, Dave tagged Erick Castro as the person who made it for him, and Erick replied by attributing the recipe to Yanni Kehagiaris. The aged rum's identity was never defined but Appleton is what folks on eGullet were using several years ago. Once prepared, this spiced Daiquiri of sorts yielded an orange, caramel, and lime aroma. Next, the lime filled the sip that flowed into rum, ginger, clove, and allspice flavors on the swallow.
