  • A fantastic drink. It's 100% because of the Smith & Cross but this drink really complements the spirit and lets it shine. Top cocktail in 2021.5 — ★★★★★
  • Wow, this is boozy. I wish I was getting something a little more than boozy. I made this with one big rock instead of up. Maybe that affected the result some? I do like S+C and it shines. — ★★★★

When Misty Kalkofen made this for me in September 2012, she told me that she wanted to teach the returning students how to drink. My blog post describes, "how she named it after a Cape Cod rum runner who died from a shotgun blast in 1932. The Lowell Sun wrote, 'State police laid the slaying at the door of rum runners they believed had been using the garage as a storage place for liquor-laden trucks. The structure stands about 100 yards from the main highway in a rather isolated section a mile west of Hyannis.'" Yup, this one hits you like a shotgun blast to the head, but a tasty way to go.
