Demerara Cocktail

It’s tempting to call this “remixed” since I keep doing slight variations of this potent number by Mariano Licudine, but it’s just a matter of running out of some basic ingredient whenever I feel like making one. And I often feel like making one. It’s spirit-forward, rich, complex—great for those moments when you find yourself saying you want a real drink.

Demerara Cocktail
  • 2 oz Lemon Hart Demerara rum (El Dorado 12 Year)
  • 1 oz gold Puerto Rican rum (Mount Gay Eclipse Barbados rum)
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz passion fruit nectar
  • 1 tsp sugar syrup (1/4 oz Trader Tiki passion fruit syrup)
Shake with ice cubes and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
