Tin Goose

Tin Goose

  • 1.5 oz. Dovetail Florida rum
  • 0.5 oz. Barcardi Reserva 8 yr.
  • 0.5 oz. creme de cacao (Tempus Fugit)
  • 0.5 oz. lemon juice
  • 0.25 oz. Lillet Blanc

Shake with ice and strain into coupe.

Here’s a rum twist on a Twentieth Century Cocktail, one of my favorite gin drinks. Obviously rum is subbed for the gin, and the ratios were then tweaked to my taste.

Since the original drink’s name comes from the train transport between Chicago and New York City, I thought in this case with the Florida and (originally) Cuban rum it was only appropriate to name the drink after the common transport on that route back during Prohibition, the Ford Trimotor, nicknamed the Tin Goose.

There have been other Tin Goose cocktails, I must admit, but it seemed too perfect for this drink to not use. And the drink will be gone before anyone notices.
