“And as is true with pretty much everything else, the French have a different way of making rum, relying in this case on fresh sugarcane juice rather than molasses for the base of the distinctive rhum agricole from Martinique and Guadeloupe …”, Paul Clarke writes in his book The Cocktail Chronicles.
Reason enough to try one of the drinks in his book, the Unique Bird created by Connor O’Brian.
2 oz. Rhum Agricole Blanc (my one is from Martinique), 1/2 oz. Lime juice, 1/2 oz. Pineapple Syrup, 1/4 oz. Yellow Chartreuse, garnish: Lime Wheel (optional, my choice)
Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lime wheel.
The tastes dominated by sugar cane, Chartreuse and pineapple in this drink are very unique, exotic and colorful, like a unique bird. This is a great one!
