One of the cocktail trends for fall is lower-proof cocktails. The One-Eyed Willie at CBD Provisions in The Joule Hotel DGAF about that trend. This boozed-up rum delight is the perfect way to end the summer, thanks to the bright orange and pineapple flavors and the tiny bit of complexity from a couple of dashes of Creole bitters.
Stop into CBD and get one of these libations to accompany your Berkshire pigs head carnitas and you'll feel like you're in the islands — or make it at home and turn on some Bob Marley.
1/2 oz. fresh orange juice
3/4 oz. fresh lime
3/4 oz. pineapple syrup
1/2 oz. Smith & Cross Jamaican Pot Still Rum
1/2 oz. Rhum JM 100 Proof
3/4 oz. Pierre Ferrand 1840 Cognac
2 dashes of Creole bitters
Dry shake all ingredients together in a shaker. Pour over pellet ice in a tulip glass and garnish with an orange slice and mint sprig, then grate nutmeg over the top.
