Named for the sprawling lake that slices the city of New Orleans off from the rest of the continental U.S., this is a particularly decadent flask cocktail. Caramel richness from dark rum meets the juicy cherry notes of Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, a wine-based aperitif. It’s nice poured over ice, but it also drinks well at room temperature, especially if you need a little warmth after the sun sets.
- 1¾ ounce aged rum
- 1¾ ounce Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
- 1¾ ounce Cynar
- ½ teaspoon Angostura bitters
In mixing glass, combine all ingredients. Stir until mixed, and funnel into flask.
