Baron Samedi

Baron Samedi sour cocktail with aged rum, lime juice, cinnamon syrup, and falernum syrup

Baron Samedi is a demigod of sorts in the Haitian Voodou pantheon, a skeletal figure in a black top hat known for smoking, drinking, and general mischief-making at the crossroads between life and death.

Tiki historian and mixological legend Jeff “Beachbum” Berry invented this cocktail and named it for The Baron for a circa-2008 Tiki Happy Hour event at the Old New Orleans Rum distillery. It’s almost shocking that the drink has such recent origins; it seems as if it could have come from a 16th-century Caribbean pirate looking to make use of plundered rum, citrus, and spices.
