I've cut the overproof rum by a third from the original recipe to allow the other ingredients space to shine in this delicious Martini-like, dry and spirituous aperitivo.
Adapted from a recipe by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford, England and inspired by the Dot cocktail in the 1937 The Café Royal Cocktail Book. Jason says, "This one came about as a fortuitous misreading: I read Curaçao as Cachaça, and then subbed overproof rum. The original is a far more straightforward affair, though more than pleasant." Jason's original recipe: 30 ml dry gin, 30 ml fino sherry, 15 ml Wray & Nephew overproof white rum, and 15 ml apricot liqueur.
