Martiki

For those who don’t always love the fresh clean bite of clear spirits like gin or vodka, this is the answer if you love rum. The interesting component is Kümmel, a Scandinavian spirit that is flavored with coriander.  While the original recipe from the Beachbum Berry Total Tiki app calls for 1/2 ounce of Kümmel, it can be overpowering, so start with 1/4 ounce and see how you like it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1.5 ounces Havana Club 3 Year rum (Marti 3yr rum from Panama works too, Flor de Caña, etc)
  • 1/4 ounce Kümmel (the original recipe calls for 1/2 ounce, but I find it overpowering)
  • Lemon rind and/or coconut garnish

Shake will with plenty of ice, double strain into a stemmed cocktail glass such as a coupe or martini glass, garnish with a fresh lemon rind.
