This came about while IM’ing a friend back East. We were riffing on dulce de leche. She had a recipe for dulche de leche cheesecake. I wondered how we could turn that into a cocktail. This is the result of our cross-country mind meld. And it does indeed, taste of dulce de leche. Enjoy.
2 oz. Goslings Black Seal rum (dark)
1 oz. pineapple juice
1/4 oz. vanilla syrup
1/4 oz. brown sugar syrup*
Shake with ice and strain into ice-filled Old Fashioned glass. Float 1/4 oz. Lemon Hart 151. Garnish with shaved nutmeg.
* Brown sugar syrup: 2 cups dark brown sugar with 1 cup water. Simmer for 10 minutes.
