The Rum Will Come Out Amaro

The Rum Will Come Out Amaro

  • 1.0 oz. Probitas rum
  • 0.5 oz. Barcardi 8
  • 0.5 oz. Smith & Cross overproof
  • 0.5 oz. Amaro Brovo 14
  • 0.5 oz. passion fruit liqueur (Giffard)
  • 0.25 oz. lemon juice
  • dash of Angostura bitters
  • dash of Angostura Orange bitters

Shake with ice then strain into glass.

I built this around the amaro. I used a blended base of rums I felt suited. The Probitas has an underlying vanilla that I like to match with the passion fruit, and for acid counterbalance I chose lemon. Even though the amaro provides bitter, I felt it needed a boost from the two Angosturas.

I’ve been a little overreliant on puns for names recently, but this one is perfect and I wouldn’t change it. I was close to adding a red wig to the skull for the picture, but thankfully edited myself in the end. Now stick out your chin, and grin, and DRINK!
