the royal navy dram

3 oz Zacapa Rum (2 oz Zaya)
3/4 oz Amaro Montenegro (1/2 oz)
3/4 oz Benedictine (1/2 oz)
1 Whole Egg

Shake once without ice and once with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a pinch of black lava salt or Kosher salt (sea salt).
Two Thursdays ago, I decided to make a recipe that I had spotted on the ShakeStir website called the Royal Navy Dram. This Flip was crafted by Chris Fields at the Matchbox in Chicago circa 2013 and features the Amaro Montenegro-Benedictine combination that worked well in the Alternative Ulster and Lindsey's Whimsy. Once assembled, the Royal Navy Dram proffered a caramel aroma that preceded a creamy caramel sip. Finally, rum, clementine, and herbal flavors were the final salute on the swallow.
