Bitter, But Oh So Beautiful!
1.5 oz. Ron Abuelo 7 Year Rum
.5 oz. Cocchi Barolo Chinato
.25 oz. Angostura Bitters (yep, a whole 1/4 ounce of the good stuff)
.75 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
.75 oz. Spiced Pineapple Syrup *
Express the oil from an orange peel into an empty Coupe glass; discard the peel
Shake and fine-strain cocktail into the glass
Express oil from a grapefruit peel over surface of drink; drop peel into cocktail
* Spiced Pineapple Syrup
A combination of roasted pineapple, sugar, water, cinnamon, peppercorns, ground allspice, and jalapeno pepper
** A colleague of mine made this cocktail using a 1/2 ounce orgeat syrup instead of the spiced pineapple syrup. I'll have to give that one a try...sounds good.
