June 4, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
3/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. triple sec
1 1/2 oz. gold rum
Shake with crushed ice in a shaker. Strain into a large highball glass over crushed ice.
Mount Gay Eclipse gold rum (I think it’s Eclipse). Another lovely surprise that made me go “Ooooh!” Similar to the standard Sidecar, I would describe this as a rum margarita with lemon instead of lime. Bright, fresh; not much of the caramely rum taste but just enough sweetness. A lovely drink.
Noroc! (good luck!) (Romanian)
