Equally assertive and inviting, this cocktail from Portland, Oregon’s Rum Club combines two types of rum with a complex combo of flavors.
1 1/2 oz. aged rum
1 1/2 oz. quinquina-based aperitif wine, like Bonal
1/2 oz. Rhum JM
1/2 oz. yellow Chartreuse
1/2 oz. honey syrup (1:)
2 oz. boiling water
Garnish: orange wheel studded with 2 cloves
Combine all ingredients in a preheated glass, stir and garnish.
