5 Minutes of Rum episode 21: Kirk and Sweeney 12 Year Dominican rum and the Beachcomber’s Gold cocktail.
Beachcomber’s Gold (Hollywood and Palm Springs)
Recipe circa 1937 (Hollywood) and 1950s (Palm Springs)
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz gold Puerto Rican rum (Kirk and Sweeney 12 year)
1/4 oz gold Jamaican rum (Appleton VX)
1/4 oz dark Jamaican rum (Coruba)
6 drops Pernod
4 drops almond extract
2 oz (1/4 cup) crushed ice
Add all ingredients to a mixing cup and blend. Strain into a champagne saucer or cocktail glass. Don’s presentation included an ice shell, which I’m not attempting at this time.
Note: Yes, I mis-spoke early in the episode and said 12 months when I meant 12 years. I regret the error, but an edit seemed over the top.
