Yield: makes 1 Cocktail


  • Lime wedge
  • 2 oz. white rum (rhum blanc)
  • 12 tsp. sugarcane syrup


  1. Squeeze lime wedge into a tall glass, such as a collins glass, then drop it in. Add rum and syrup. Stir vigorously with a swizzle stick. If you like, add 1 or 2 ice cubes as you stir—just enough to chill the drink but not enough to dilute it too much.
