I was really honored to be asked by Mike of @mmydrinks to join the We Have The Last Word campaign on Instagram. My first thought was how do I make a Last Word variation with rum. Green Chartreuse does not pair well with funkier rums. They are two big personalities fighting to be heard. The maraschino and lime needed to stay. Maybe, another Last Word variation could be a Hemingway Daquari twist with grapefruit liqueur....
Mots des Caraïbes
3/4 oz Rum Fire (sub Rhum JM Blanc)
3/4 Suze liqueur
3/4 oz Maraschino
3/4 oz Lime Juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with a cup of ice. Shake until a hint of frost. Double strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a cherry.
