1⁄2 oz Cynar
1 pn Nutmeg (as garnish)

Stir, strain, rock, garnish.


By Jamaican rum I mean, in this case, any full-bodied, pot still rum in the 19th century style. Pusser's or El Dorado would work as well as Appleton. Smith & Cross would probably need to be heavily cut with something else.


Named for a house of pleasure in old New York.

  • Wow. I honestly looked at the ingredients said that will probably taste pretty bad. Made myself one and it is amazing. The pot-still style rum is necessary though!

Added .25 oz of Canton to brighten it up. Whiskey lingers on the pallet. Nice sipper.
