Rum • Dry
A Rhum With a View

If a strawberry and a pear had a baby, you would get a guava. Sweet and tropical, the fruit is a perfect match for the earthy, vegetal funk of rhum agricole. “This cocktail is inspired by my travels on the island of Martinique where the rhum is made with 100-percent pressed sugar cane and there’s an abundance of fresh, local fruit,” says Dan McClary, bar manager of the The Cannibal LA. “The addition of a dry sparkling wine simply lifts up the guava and brightens the cocktail.” Drier than it is sweet, this libation makes a perfect aperitif anytime of day.
