Episode 18: Montanya Platino

5 Minutes of Rum episode 18: US distillery Montanya’s Platino rum, a brief mention of bitters, and The Man with the Golden Rum.

The Man With the Golden Rum

1 oz Montanya Platino
1 oz Appleton VX
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz white grapefruit juice (fresh if available)
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz apricot brandy (Marie Brizard if available, otherwise use Bols)
Dash of Fee’s Old Fashioned Aromatic Bitters (use caution, a few drops is all that's needed)

Shake with ice cubes and pour unstrained into a double old-fashioned glass or a tiki mug. I didn’t garnish it at the seminar, but a sprig of fresh mint would not be unwelcome.
