Pirate Hook Sword - Copy

“This drink is the end result of a lot of experiments inspired by the Meat Hook and Vieux Carre. After much deliberation, one night whilst making a “surprise me” request for a regular, this was the riff on the classic that stuck. It also saw me through to the State Finals of the Suntory Cup Australia competition. The Pirate Hook, named for its predecessor, is still a menu item and a favourite of our rum and Manhattan drinkers at ReviveR.” Justin Southam

Pirate Hook Justin Southam Flames - Copy45 ml (1.5 oz) Mount Gay XO rum

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Punt E Mes

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Strega

7.5 ml (.25 oz) Rittenhouse 100-proof Rye whiskey

1 flamed orange twist, as garnish

Stir the first three ingredients over ice and strain into chilled coupette. Then float the rye and add the garnish.

gaz sez:  The Punt E Mes and the Strega thrust and parry in this drink, and neither one of them manages to overcome the other. Instead, they come together in harmony providing a glorious backdrop to the Mount Gay XO, the lead role here. And I do love that Justin pours the Rittenhouse Rye down a sword when he floats it atop the drink! Avast, there, Matey!”
