Today’s Happy Hour: Siren’s Nightcap

A Relaxing Rum Drink to End the Night

Some drinks are morning eye-openers.

Some are best enjoyed over a long lunch.

Others pair perfectly with dinner.

And then there are those relaxing late-night cocktails that are the drinking equivalent of sitting in a comfortable chair by the fire—better still if you’re sitting in a comfortable chair by the fire.

This is one of those. You can tell because of what’s in it, and also because it’s got instructions right there in the name (see: “nightcap”).

The rum itself is full of tropical fruits, almonds and spice. Mix that with a couple of bittersweet Italian liqueurs, chocolate bitters and salt, and you’ve got a rich and warming drink that will always be there for you at the end of a long day.

Siren’s Nightcap

2 oz Bacardi Facundo Neo rum
3/4 oz Cynar
1/2 oz Aperol
1 pinch sea salt
2 dashes chocolate bitters

In a mixing glass, add the salt and then the rest of the ingredients. Stir with plenty of ice and strain into a rocks glass with a big ice cube. Garnish with an orange peel.
