  • Made the Ted Haigh variant with the S&C rum and the PF dry curacao. Fantastic drink that really shows off the Smith and Cross at its best.
  • I find a full ounce of S&C can be a bit overwhelming, so I used a 1/2 oz and it worked out well. I have also seen a suggestion to use Coruba for the rum.
