Sometimes on a cold fall evening all you want to drink is a bright, sunny cocktail to remind of warmer days recently passed. This Gramercy Tavern creation draws inspiration from both the classic Hemingway Daiquiri and Audrey Saunders' Old Cuban. It's at once tart and refreshing with a touch of richness from the aged rum.
Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
2 ounces aged rum, such as Banks "7 Golden Age" rum
1/2 ounce maraschino liqueur
1/4 ounce fresh juice from about 2 limes
1/4 ounce simple syrup (see note)
3 dashes Angostura bitters
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add the rum, maraschino, lime juice, simple syrup, and bitters. Shake until well chilled, about 15 seconds.
Strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
