Review:

As the name suggests, this spirit-forward penny chew of a cocktail tastes reminiscent of a Tootsie Roll.

History:

Adapted from a 2015 recipe created by Aisha Sharpe in New York City, USA. Another version of this cocktail, also adapted from a recipe by Aisha Sharpe, calls for 60ml aged rum, 12.5ml maple syrup, and 6 drops of chocolate bitters.

For non-USA readers, a Tootsie Roll is chocolate-flavoured caramel candy that's been made in Chicago, Illinois since 1907 and was the first American "penny candy" to be individually wrapped.
