Rhum Cocktail Marilene

Scott Holliday (invented at Chez Henri)

2 oz Barbancourt 8-year 5-Star Reserve Rhum
1/2 lime cut into 4 pieces
1 1/2 tsp sugar (preferably turbinado)
3 strong dashes Angostura bitters

Muddle lime and sugar in a double old-fashioned glass. Fill with ice and add rhum. Shake hard to blend ingredients. Add bitters and stir before serving. The cocktail is Holliday’s “homage to a Haitian painter and poet who introduced me to Rhum Barbancourt back in the day when it had to be hand carried back from Haiti. She made a very traditional daiquiri-like drink that just blew me away in its simplicity and perfection.”
