From Wikipedia: “Cap-Haïtien (Okap or Kapayisyen in Kréyòl) is a city of about 190,000 people on the north coast of Haiti.” After the 2010 earthquake, relief supplies were delivered to Cap-Haïtien’s port.
Anyhow, the drink:
- 3/4 jigger Bacardi (1 1/4 oz Rhum Barbancourt 15)
- 3/4 jigger aged dark rum (1 oz Cruzan Dark)
- 1 to 2 tsp strained honey (2/3 oz honey syrup*)
Stir well in an old-fashioned glass, then add half a glass of cracked ice and stir again. “No bitters, no garnish.”
Mmmm, sweetened rum! Not a bad drink, certainly, but a little too simplistic for me to get excited about it. Contrary to Baker’s injunction, this is much, much better with a dash of Angostura bitters.
I made this before I switched to a two-ounce jigger, and boy, the rum measurements would’ve been easier if I’d switched sooner.
Cap Haitien Rum & Honey: ★★★☆☆
* To make honey syrup: Mix one part honey with one part hot water, and stir until honey is dissolved.
