2 oz Rum, Havana Club 7
3⁄4 oz Strega
1⁄2 oz Cynar
1 bsp Rum, Smith & Cross (As float)
1 twst Lemon zest

Stir with ice, strain over big rock. Float Smith & Cross; twist lemon and drop in.


Ideally use Cuban rum for the base but feel free to experiment with others (Appleton 12 should be great). Miramar is a suburb of Havana; it's also the Wellington suburb where our movie industry is based (and which I can see from my lounge).


Inspired by the Havana, by Giancarlo Jesus of the Hawthorn Lounge.

  • Delicious! Love the rum on rum. — ★★★★
  • Will probably need subbed rum
  • "Round and brown" is a good descriptor. I used El Dorado 8 which maybe overemphasized the caramel flavors the Cynar was already bringing. — ★★★
