cut your tape

1 1/2 oz Privateer White Rum
1/2 oz Santa Teresa 1796 Rum
1/2 oz Joseph Cartron Dark Crème de Cacao
1/2 oz Briottet Crème de Cassis
1 dash Legendre Herbsaint

Stir with ice, strain into a Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with a spritz of regular Herbsaint.
Two Sundays ago, Andrea and I attended a performance of Mr. Swindle's Traveling Peculiarium down near the Harpoon Brewery. Our travels afterwards led us to No. 9 Park where we stopped in for a drink. The cocktail that I selected from the menu was the Cut Your Tape, and bartender Brad Weidman set off to make this two rum number. Once prepared, it welcomed the nose with cassis' berry and Herbsaint's anise aromas. Next, a dark berry sip sailed into rum, dark berry, chocolate, and anise flavors on the swallow. While the combination was rather delightful, it did tend towards the sweeter side as the cocktail warmed up.
