Sugar, for caramelizing rim of glass
1/4 ounce fresh squeezed orange juice
1/2 ounce Canton Ginger Liquor
1.5 ounces Pampero Anniversario Rum
1.5 ounces hot water
Orange twist, optional for garnish
- To create the sugar rim, lightly wet the rim of a wine glass, and dip in a plate of sugar. Then, using a lighter with a handle or a kitchen torch, light the sugar on fire. Be sure to use a glass that can withhold heat. The sugar will melt and caramelize. Turn the glass while the flames burn to ensure even caramelization. Set the glass aside to cool.
- In a cocktail shaker combine the orange juice, Canton, rum, and hot water. Stir to combine.
- Strain into prepared glass, garnish with an orange twist, and enjoy immediately while the mixture is still warm.
