We found this in our beloved tome, The Joy of Cocktails. Author Gaz Regan says that he found it in an ancient Waldorf-Astoria cocktail book, and freshened it up a bit by adding bitters and tweaking the ratios. He calls for dark rum, but nearly any kind of rum is lovely in this.
- 1½ parts Dark rum or Light rum or Spiced rum or Aged rum
- 1 part Apricot liqueur
- ½ part Lime juice
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
