H10, did you drink that entire wall of cans? Cheers.

I have some lime juice left over, but I'm not sure I can or should finish it....

Clairin - the raw and grassy cane spirit from Haiti - is so new to the U.S. market, there aren't many great recipes out there yet. It's fine in small doses, but not easy to employ as the centerpiece of a cocktail. That all changed when I discovered 96 Tears, a simple Daiquiri riff by Nathan Robinson. Lime juice (3/4 oz), orgeat (3/4 oz) and Angostura bitters (3 dashes) pair perfectly with 2 oz of Clairin. I love the blend of funky, sweet, sour and bitter flavors. Four out of five stars.

This one's for Skip: Rum and Coke

I'll have to give this one a shot. Do you have the Velier series of Clairins? They're a lot more expressive than St Benevolence.

I'll need to keep an eye out, though it's very rare to see Velier bottles in the wild down there in Flori-duh. Nathan created the cocktail using St. Benevolence, so I defer to him on the reasoning for using it.

Pretty sure the FRS store carries the unaged and even the aged expressions so you should have distribution down there. The original four are Sajous, Vaval, Casimir and Vaval. They also released a variation called Communal which is a blend of all four at a slightly lower proof that works great in cocktails. It's worth picking some of these up to explore the bizarre side of Haitian rhum.

Mahalo Mike ... I will do that!
