Jamaican Sour

This was a riff on the Eastern Sour, a Trader Vic’s cocktail that features orange juice, lemon juice, orgeat, and bourbon. I thought I’d try it with rum instead.

2 ½ oz Orange Juice
¾ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Orgeat
1 oz Appleton Reserve Rum
1 oz Plantation Xaymaca Rum

This didn’t turn out as good as I thought it would. Perhaps lemon juice would have paired better with the orange. They can’t all be winners.
