One we also like to call "Night Drive", this cocktail is rich, complex and satisfying. Appropriately a drink for the long summer nights spent on a patio listening to the world go by.
Many spirits can be mixed in as a substitute, but the aged rum adds a complementary syrupy-oaky sweetness that we love. Plus, a nice aged dark rum loves orange!
