I was in Haiti with my pal José Andrés and he kept talking the whole trip down about rum sours…he was entranced and enchanted and as usual it turns out he was pitch perfect and right on the money.
Makes 1 drink
3 ounces Haitian rum
1 teaspoon honey
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce fresh lime juice
2 mint leaves
In a mixing glass, combine rum, honey, simple syrup, lime juice and mint leaves with a fistful of ice.
Shake vigorously, then strain over fresh ice in a large tumbler. Slurp and enjoy.
