I got the idea for this while sipping gold Rhum J.M one evening with some friends. Someone pointed out the apricot note in the rum, especially when it opened up a little with water. I’ve kept the apricot brandy in the background so you can still taste the rum. The color of J.M is apricot too.
1 1/2 oz Bacardi 8
3/4 oz gold Rhum J.M
2 tsp Grand Marnier
1 tsp apricot brandy
1/2 oz lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. SOURCE: ROWEN, FOGGED IN LOUNGE
Some notes on my cocktail life in San Francisco—mostly thoughts about classics or an idea I’m working on. Once in a while, I even go out and drink someone else’s liquor. (I try to take pictures to prove it.)
