Brendan Dorr, B&O American Brasserie – Baltimore, MD
Inspiration: Whiskey is a popular spirit in Baltimore right now, and this expression of Cruzan Rum pairs perfectly with Knob Creek’s Rye Bourbon, which adds a delicious spicy finish. The flavor profile of this cocktail is balanced with a heavily sugared rim, which is a signature characteristic of Crusta cocktails. Baltimore is known as “Charm City” and rum fans will certainly find this libation a lucky treat to enjoy on a balmy summer day in Baltimore.

1 1/4 parts Cruzan® Aged Dark Rum
3/4 part Knob Creek® Rye Bourbon
3/4 part Chamomile Grappa Liqueur
1 part Fresh Lemon Juice
