Smuggler’s Cove owner Martin Cate drew inspiration for this drink from a news report suggesting that a chemical compound at the center of the galaxy smells like rum and tastes like raspberries.
2 oz. Demerara rum
1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. rich simple syrup (2:1)
1/2 oz. honey syrup (equal parts honey and water)
1/4 oz. raspberry liqueur
1 small pinch cinnamon
Tools: shaker, strainer
Garnish: raspberry and lime wheel
Combine ingredients in a shaker and fill with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled glass. Spear a raspberry in the center of a lime wheel and float in the center of the glass as a garnish.
