History

Fun story: this one was my entry to the Brazilian Bacardi Legacy. I failed to make the top 10, but I decided to give this one another go. The original used Bacardi Añejo, but while I was experimenting, I picked a bottle in the dark thinking it was Angostura 7, but I ended up with a brandy. I made the cocktail and thought it was great, prouded myself that all I needed was a better rum. Once I realized that I used brandy I couldn't get it out of my head. Original recipe also used 2 dashes of Angostura to simulate the spiciness from mango lassi, I replaced it for Bittermen's Xocolatl Mole bitters because I thought the combination matched better (chocolate + mango is a good combo, I almost swapped orgeat for chocolate liqueur). I also included a tad of water because the outcome was too thick to be normally strained, this initial dilution allows a better pour without ruining the wonderful mouthfeel.
