With a menu that features white and dark rums, blackstrap rum and Barbados rum—just to name a few—Rum Club is keen on its namesake sugar spirit. Its house Daiquiri (a nod to the Hemingway variation) is an intriguing combo of aged rum, fresh lime, simple syrup and a few other unexpected ingredients.
2 oz. aged rum (Rum Club uses Bacardi 8)
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. rich simple syrup (2:1)
1/4 oz. maraschino liqueur
2 dashes Angostura bitters
6 drops Herbsaint
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: cocktail or coupe
Combine all ingredients with ice, shake and strain into a chilled glass.
