Keep Your Dreams A Burnin’
Keep Your Dreams A Burnin’ is a masterful twist on the sherry cobbler template from legendary New Orleans bartender Kirk Estopinal.
Estopinal brings in a little bit of Jamaican rum, in the form of Smith & Cross. That rum is midway between golden and dark, so you could use either type of rum as a substitute.
Like any cobbler, the final drink should be wreathed in fresh fruits. Powdered sugar and cinnamon sticks are nice, too!
- 2½ parts Dry sherry or Sweet sherry
- ½ part Aged rum or Dark rum
- ½ part Orgeat
- 2 dashes Aromatic bitters
- 2 pieces Lemon peel
Shake all ingredients (yes, even the lemon peels) with ice. Strain into a short glass or julep cup filled with crushed ice. Garnish with half-wheels of citrus, brandied cherries, and/or a cinnamon stick, and dust with powdered sugar if you’d like.
