This signature cocktail would make Ernest Hemingway proud, considering the the Rum used was made in his honor. The taste of the rum with its hints of bourbon, cinnamon and almonds blending with the muddled orange slice, sugar, cherry and bitters, gives this cocktail a smooth and mildly sweet taste. It is a dangerous cocktail as it is very easy to drink.
Maya Mehta has been bartending at Bread and Circuses for three years. Fortunately she has returned from her brief hiatus (for a trip to Fiji) so look for more of her videos, soon.
