dr. doctor

1 1/2 oz Planteray 5 Year Barbados Rum (RL Seale 10 Year)
1/2 oz Planteray Overproof Rum (OFTD)
1 oz Kronan Swedish Punsch
1 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)

Dry shake (shake with one ice cube), pour over crushed ice in a double old fashioned glass, and add a straw.
Two Mondays ago, I returned to the online recipe flashcards for the Fall 2012 menu at the Dorrance in Providence, Rhode Island, where I decided that the Dr. Doctor would scratch that craving for a Daiquiri. The Dr. Doctor is a riff on the classic Doctor Cocktail via Ted Haigh who modified it from the one that first appeared in Harry McElhone's 1927 Barflies and Cocktails; the same combination as Ted's was published as the Waldorf Cocktail in the 1930 Savoy Cocktail Book. Here, the concept was expanded with two rums and the addition of falernum. Once prepared, the Dr. Doctor offered up caramel, lime, and clove aromas. Next, lime and caramel on the sip prescribed a medley of rum notes including burly and slightly funky ones, dryness, and clove flavors on the swallow.
