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. The Rum Club 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.
