The dark rum float atop this elongated rum sour makes the first few sips so good that you'll want another to experience the best bit again.
The signature cocktail at The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts, the oldest country club in the USA. The cocktail is an upgrade of the club's previous rum float and was created by Fernando Figueroa, who started work at the bar during Easter week in 1990.
The Fernando cocktail became famous in June 2022 when the club was hosting the U.S. Open thanks to a piece by Paul Sullivan featuring the cocktail and its creator in The New York Times. At the club, this cocktail is made with Mount Gay as the base rum and sour mix rather than freshly squeezed juices.
