Put aside any preconceived notions you might have about the shudder-inducing overproof rums of lore. This aged rum made from Demerara sugar, while definitely potent, goes down unbelievably smooth. Toasty notes of brown butter and caramel play against a balanced spice profile. So good it should come with a warning label! Try it in a old school style Tiki drink like this modern version of Zombie Punch.
1 oz Lemon Hart & Son 151
1.5 oz White Rum (such as Damoiseau)
2 oz White Grapefruit Juice
2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
.5 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz English Breakfast Tea (cooled)
Combined in a shaker with ice, shake vigorously, and strain into a large glass filled with (preferably crushed) ice. Garnish with a grapefruit slice and a tiny paper parasol. Cheers!
