So last week we posted a longdrink in which we used overproof Ron Esclavo. Today we want to showcase the same rum in a stiffer drink. When developing this recipe we were inspired by the classic Jade cocktail, but we swapped out quite a few things and played a bit with the ratios. What we did keep from the original was crème de menthe, a mint liqueur that works best in smaller quantities, but if used correctly it can lift a drink to cocktail heaven.⁠

Ron Esclavo’s overproof rum is potent at 57,5 percent alcohol. However it is fantastic in a cocktail like this, where the rum gets to be the star of the drink. Using 1,5 ounces of the rum you can definitely taste it, and appreciate its qualities. Still the mint liqueur and the limoncello shine through and help adding an ever so slight exotic touch to the cocktail.⁠
