Mahogany Hall

1 oz Irish whiskey, Redbreast
1 oz Jamaican rum, Appleton
34 oz Sherry, Lustau East India Solera
12 oz Cynar
1 pn Nutmeg (as garnish)
Instructions
Stir, strain, rock, garnish.
Notes
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.
History
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! — ☆☆☆☆
