Fox Trot Cocktail

Fox Trot Cocktail

The Juice of 1/2 Lemon or 1 Lime. (Juice 1/2 lemon)
2 Dashes Orange Curacao. (1/2 teaspoon Luxardo Triplum)
Bacardi Rum. (1 1/2 oz Flor de Cana Extra Dry)
(1/2 oz Inner Circle Green Rum)

Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

The “character rum” which I had previously been deploying in cocktails calling for Bacardi rum was a flop here. I added too much of it for such a lightly sweetened and flavored cocktail. Just use the Flor de Cana, or keep it down to a dash.

Another proto-Margarita?

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
