Fog Cutter Revisited

The Fog Cutter should really be done with a cream sherry, which I didn't have when I made it last. This time I also have my splendid orgeat syrup scented with orange blossom water. The difference is incredible. There's a lot of rum in this drink, but it is mixed down so you really notice the floral notes and even the warmth of the sherry before you say: "Arr. There's  rum in there' matey!" I enjoyed garnishing this drink with all the fruit I happened to have on hand.
  • 2 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. brandy (Cognac recommended)
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 tsp. sweet sherry
  • 1 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. orgeat syrup
Combine all ingredients except sherry in a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into a highball glass. Float tsp. sherry on top.
