Instructions

Stir, strain, up.

Notes

A bittered Pompadour playing off Bonal's similarity to Pineau des Charentes and affinity for Jamaican rum, named for a Bette Davis film where she sports that hairstyle. Sort of a Patois crossed with a Mai Tai as well.

Comments

Meh...sorry to be a downer but this didn't work for me.  I used Depaz rhum agricole, Appleton 12, Bonal, and Bitterman's Xocolatl Mole and it just felt like a bad mix.  Maybe a different run would have helped - perhaps something stronger like Smith & Cross.  IN the end it just seemed like a good idea, with some ingredients I love that nonetheless came across as somehow being "off."  Certainly not undrinkable, but not something I'd make again, or recommend.
