Royal Bermuda Yacht Club Cocktail

from PDT

  • 2 oz. Mount Gay Eclipse Amber Rum
  • 1 oz. Lime Juice
  • .5 oz. Cointreau
  • .5 oz. John D. Taylor's Velvet Falernum

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a lime wheel.

After reading about this drink in Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails in 2004, I picked up a bottle of Velvet Falernum and have stocked it in all the bars I've run ever since. —Crosby Gaige, Cocktail Guide and Ladies' Companion, 1945
