What is it with the Italians and some of their liqueurs? Campari has a reddish color so bright it could be used as automobile stripe paint. And here’s Galliano, today’s modifier, with a brilliant yellow hue and a taste palate running from vanilla to anise, with more than 30 herbs and spices in between. Why is this drink called the Communicator? Probably because it has so much to say.
1 1/2 ounces dark rum
1/2 ounce Galliano liqueur
2 teaspoons clear Creme de Cacao
Pour all of the ingredients into an old-fashioned glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir thoroughly.
Tasting notes: Rich and spicy, with high notes from the Galliano.
