Palmetto Instructions

The Palmetto cocktail is a classic drink that combines the smoothness of aged rum with the richness of vermouth. This cocktail originated in the 19th century and is a popular choice for those who enjoy a drink with a bit of history.

To make a Palmetto cocktail, start by chilling a cocktail glass in the freezer. Once chilled, fill the glass with ice to keep the cocktail cold. In a mixing glass, combine 2 oz of aged rum and 1 oz of sweet vermouth. Add a dash of bitters for some complexity. Stir the mixture gently for about 30 seconds to combine the flavors.

Take the chilled cocktail glass out of the freezer and strain the mixture into the glass. Garnish with a cherry or a lemon peel for a touch of color and aroma. Sip and enjoy the smooth and slightly sweet flavor of a Palmetto cocktail.

Best served in a Hurricane Glass.
