The Morro is deliciously rich and well-balanced. I appreciate the idea of glazing the rim of the glass with sugar, because there isn't much in the drink itself to balance the citrus. But there's not much citrus and a lot of rum, which loves sugar too. I chose Bluecoat Barrel Reserve gin for this drink because it is a "dark" gin to go with a dark rum.
  • 2 oz. gin (Bluecoat Barrel Reserve used)
  • 1 oz. dark rum (Lyon dark rum used)
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into an Old Fashioned glass with a sugar coated rim. Add ice, or a large ice ball as shown.
