Picador

Seeing as the drink that used to go by the name Picador now calls itself Margarita, it seems a shame to leave a perfectly good name lying on the shelf—especially since it basically means “stinger.” So here’s a Cuban-style Stinger, lighter and whiter but still rich and refreshing.

2 1/4 ounces white Cuban-style rum
3/4 ounce white crème de menthe
To finish: 2 drops Angostura bitters

Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass; gently tip 2 drops—I don’t mean dashes—of bitters onto the top of the drink.
