Our cocktail of the week should help distract from the sudden snowy turn this winter has taken. The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club is a tropical rum-based drink that features falernum.
Traditionally a rum-based liqueur, falernum evokes almond, clove, ginger and vanilla flavors. It’s associated with tiki and swizzle-style cocktails and can add a layer of dimension, spice and texture to a cocktail, while providing a balanced acidity and dryness.
