A Six for a Nine

About this Cocktail

On National Rum Day, I thought about how falernum can almost sub for a vermouth in some drinks, and I decided to cross the Corn'n'Oil with the Creole Cocktail. For a name, I dubbed this one after the Bajan Creole phrase of "Don't take a six for a nine" meaning not to misjudge a person's true intentions.

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Barbados Rum
  • 1/2 oz Falernum
  • 1/4 oz Benedictine
  • 1/4 oz Amer Picon
  • 2 dash Angostura Bitters
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.

For substitutions, a bitter or citrus amaro like Amaro Nonino, Ramazzotti, or perhaps Montenegro could work for Amer Picon. If no Barbados rum is around, another aged medium-bodied rum like Appleton would work.
