Review:

Rum character shines in this citrusy aperitivo. Chartreuse plays a very subtle supporting role with the bitters perhaps more forward.

History:

Recipe adapted from 1935 Bar La Florida, Havana, Cuba, menu. This rejuvenated classic brought to my attention by Jason E. Clapham at the St. Edward's MCR at Oxford.

RUM DAISSY
1 Glass full of cracked ice.
1 Dash Angostura.
½ Teaspoon Yellow Chartreuse.
2 Ounces Bacardi Rum.
½ Unsqueezed lemon peel.
½ Teaspoon Sugar.
Several sprigs pepper-mint. Two cherries and season fruits. Stir and serve without straining.

Bar La Florida, 1935
