August 20, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
1 sugar cube
3/4 oz. Calvados
3/4 oz. white or dark rum
Press sugar cube on a lime wedge in a small highball glass. Pour in liquors and stir well. Add ice cubes and stir again.
Meyer’s dark rum. This cocktail was definitely the winner of the night. A bit on the boozy side (nothing wrong with that!) and a little sweet, with the lime as a bright top note. Surprisingly enough, the Calvados boosts the rum and sharpens some of the caramel flavors. Definitely a keeper! The construction of the drink is pretty much the same as a traditional Caipirinha.
