A rum drink with a long name, it’s the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Cocktail:
- 2.00 ounces Barbados Rum
- 0.75 ounce lime juice
- 2 dashes Cointreau
- 2 teaspoons Falernum
Shake in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass.
Just like gin and lemon are meant for each other, a similar thing can be said for rum and lime.
The big addition to the Royal Bermuda is Falernum. Falernum is a sweet syrup that has a slightly spicy flavor, but nothing like the Allspice Dram in drinks like the Lion’s Tail. It’s named after a British club established in 1844.
This drink is kind of a proto-Tiki drink but it isn’t as strong nor as complex later drinks would be. It’s tasty.
