Our comment:

Burnt orange oils add smoky notes, complexity and balance to this bittersweet drink. A perfect after-dinner cocktail.

History:

Created in 2008 by Paul Mathew at The Hide, London, originally for the Boutique Bar Show "Free Spirit" cocktail competition. Based on the classic Fin de Siècle, but using rum in place of gin. Paul's original recipe called for: 45ml Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva, 15ml Antica Formula, 10ml Amer Picon and Palo Cortado Viejo sherry.
