Blaq Daq

a bitters heavy, spicy daiquiri
34 oz Virgin Islands Rum, Cruzan Blackstrap
34 oz Navy strength rum, Smith & Cross
12 oz Bitters, Angostura
12 oz Allspice Dram, St. Elizabeth
34 oz Demerara syrup
1 oz Lime juice
Shake all ingredients, strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a lime twist or lime wheel.
Due to the amount of bitters used, this drink is pretty flexible with the rum choices. I've used Goslings, Hamilton Jamaican Black, Mt. Gay Black, Coruba, etc. without splitting the base with Smith & Cross to good effect. I've also used 1 oz of a high proof rum like Hamilton Demerara 151 by itself. Using all Cruzan Blackstrap was too much of a good thing for me, so I would split that with another dark rum. If you don't have the allspice dram, just use 1 oz demerara syrup.

  • Used Amargo Vallet in place of the Angostura; used Appleton V/X with the Cruzan. Found the Allspice a bit strong, and I might have needed to cut the demerara to 0.5 oz as a result of using the Vallet. — ☆☆☆☆

Used Gosling's and OTFD

Used Gosling's and OTFD because that's what I had. Went a touch lighter on the Demerara. It's really good.
