Fluffy Ruffles

Jerry Thomas invented this drink, a dry and simple light rum cocktail that is similar to a Martini, but flavored with those coppery notes that rum has over grain spirits. It's really quite nice and helps you appreciate the dry vermouth you chose. I found this recipe in a different book than the New York Bartender's Guide. I don't know why it wasn't in there, because it is old and well regarded, but I'm sure that if it was, it would have more rum in it. I recommend using two, no, three ounces of rum to make the drink last longer.
  • 1 1/2 oz. light rum
  • 1/2 oz. dry vermouth
  • lemon twist
Combine rum and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist lemon peel over glass and drop in.
