Buena Vista

  • FAST

A creation of Chicama restaurant in Manhattan, the Buena Vista gets flavor boosts from both spiced rum and lemon-flavored rum. Frosting the rim of the glass with green sugar is optional but does make things more festive.

  1. Sprigs of mint
  2. 1/2 lime cut into pieces
  3. 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons Peachtree Schnapps
  6. 1/4 cup Bacardi Limón
  1. In the bottom of a shaker, muddle a few sprigs of mint with 1/2 lime cut into pieces and 1 teaspoon sugar. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and 1 1/2 tablespoons Peachtree Schnapps. Fill the shaker with ice and add 1/4 cup Bacardi Limón. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass rimmed with crystalline green sugar. Garnish with a mint sprig and a lime slice.
