Stay Up Later

In this variation on the Stay Up Late cocktail from Lucius Beebe's 1946 Stork Club Bar Book, mixologist Richard Boccato replaces the original drink's gin and Cognac with pisco, mezcal and añejo rum. (He likes Diplomático rum for its deep molasses flavor and reasonable price.) More Rum Drinks
