1 1⁄2 oz Añejo rum (Something dry and aged like Barbancour 8 Year)
3⁄4 oz Madeira (Sercial or another dry style like Verdelho)
3⁄4 oz Bénédictine
1 twst Orange peel (As garnish, cut into the shape of a button, see photo)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a (button-shaped) orange twist.


I was influenced by a 2010 Thomas Waugh whisky drink called the Prospector (pre-Death &Co.) to create this drink of the day during our bar's Rhum Barbancourt drinks week (theme for drink of the day). The name helped to sell this drink tremendously!

I did not have any Madeira so I used a dry sherry - very pleasant!
