New Yorkers love their alcohol, so much so that many cocktails have been named in their honor (The Manhattan, Long Island iced tea, The Brooklyn, to mention a few). Many Lowcountry residents love a great cocktail as well. With that in mind, the team of mixologists at Rollers Beer, Wine & Spirits have created a series of cocktails that celebrate local landmarks, events and founding fathers. This month’s featured libation is The Mitchelville. We respectfully acknowledge the journey from the Triangle Trade to the Port Royal Experiment with rum, lime, cane sugar and an appropriate dose of bitterness.
2 1/2 ounces aged rum
1 ounce fresh lime juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 ounce Suze
1/4 ounce Velvet Falernum
Add all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice.
Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and double strain into a chilled glass.
