1 1⁄2 oz Jamaican rum, Wray & Nephew Overproof (Other 126° Jamaican overproof white rums may work too)
1⁄4 oz Falernum
1⁄4 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
1 twst Lime peel (For garnish)

Stir with ice, strain into a coupe glass, and garnish with a lime twist.


After my bar shift one night, I was inspired to create a stirred rum drink by crossing a Nuclear Daiquiri and a Georgetown Club (see source reference to links to these drinks). I knew that the Georgetown Club's dry vermouth would not be able to handle the Nuclear Daiquiri's overproof rum, so I swapped it to the sweeter blanc vermouth. Moreover, the addition of citrus elements from a lime twist and orange bitters really rounded out the recipe as it came together, and for a name, I dubbed it the Nuclear Club Cocktail after the term for the nations possessing nuclear weapons.
