THE FANTASY SUITE

Fantasy suite week finally arrived, so things are about to get more awkward. I featured three very different liquors for three different contestants. Bringing together rhum agricole, aquavit, and crème de cacao produced a unique experience, as I'm sure fantasy suite week is for all involved...

For the drink:

-1 1/4 oz rhum agricole (Rhum JM VO)

-1/3 oz aquavit (Linie)

-1 oz crème de cacao (Tempus Fugit)

-1 oz fresh lemon juice

-1/3 oz simple syrup

-3 strawberries

-Dried chocolate mint and spearmint


Garnish:

Strawberry slice


Glassware:

Martini glass


In a fire safe vessel, add the dried mint. Ignite the mint with a blowtorch. When it begins to smoke, cover it with the martini glass upside down. Add the rhum to a cocktail shaker and muddle the strawberries for for 5-10 seconds. Combine the remaining ingredients in the shaker with ice and shake for 10 seconds. Pour through a Hawthorne and fine mesh strainer into the smoked glass.
