1 1⁄4 oz Añejo rum
1 1⁄4 oz Sweet vermouth
1 twst Orange peel

Stir, strain, up, twist.


I like a white Palmetto: 2 parts El Dorado 3 to 1 part Dolin Blanc, 2 dashes mole bitters, lemon twist.


The earliest reference I know of is in the Savoy Cocktail Book, which calls for St. Croix rum and sweet vermouth. Some versions call for dry vermouth and aromatic bitters.

  • Made with Don Q Anejo, Dolin red, and Regan's. EDIT: Tried the white variant with agricole and vermouth blancs and mole bitters. Preferable to the original. — ★★★
