2 ounces white rum (for this I prefer the Flor de Caña 4 Year Extra Dry Rum; my usually dependable house brand, Bacardi Silver Rum, will do but doesn’t work quite as well)

1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

¾ ounce rich simple syrup (made with a 2:1 ratio of sugar dissolved in water; Demerara or Turbinado cane sugar preferred)

Hard cracked ice


Fill cocktail shaker at least two-thirds full of hard, cracked ice, then add the liquid ingredients; shake it vigorously for 12-15 seconds, strain into a chilled cocktail (martini) glass. Garnish, if you wish, with a lime twist. Drink and repeat as necessary or desired. L’Chaim!
