Not the bird as much as the the bright red-robed Catholic clergy. The Cardinal is one of the class of Monkish drinks that have nothing in common except for their related names (Sanctuary, Abby, Cloister, Bishop, etc.) This one is very different in that it is the only one of these drinks with amaretto in it.

I can't say enough good things about this drink. It has that great combination of lime juice and triple sec and enough white rum to make it tropical, but amaretto makes it fit into that class of drinks like the Cloister that make use of richly flavored Central European liqueurs. Lazzaroni is very classic amaretto with an angelic marzipan cookie flavor that you really notice in this drink.
  • 2 oz. white rum
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. amaretto
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • lime slice
Combine all ingredients except lime slice in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime slice.
