Review:

Best described as a "Rum Sidecar", like the classic Sidecar this cocktail is a tad on the sour side unless sipped through sugared rim. Altogether a better drink if you forgo the rim and add 2.5ml (half a barspoon) sugar syrup (2:1) so the balance is properly integrated.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry originally using gold Bajan rum this features in his 2010 book Beachbum Berry Remixed: A Gallery of Tiki Drinks.

OUTRIGGER
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
¾ ounce triple sec
1 ½ ounces gold Barbados rum
Sugar
Rub the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with your spent lemon shell, then coat the moistened rim with sugar. Shake the rum, lemon juice and triple sec with ice cubes. Strain into the sugar-frosted glass (pictured). [The glass pictured is an angular-shaped modern flute.

Jeff Berry, 2010
