Typically, the Sazerac is created with whiskey, but Flora De Cana Gold rum called for a bigger pairing.

Di Mi!
Five Farms Irish Cream – Nobel Espresso – Almond Dusted Caramel

Di Mi is a 1920’s slang word for “My Goodness”. When we created this cocktail using Five Farms Irish Cream our original intention was to steer away from the traditional Irish Cream & Coffee pairing but after one sip It demanded to be paired with the dark, rich Noble Espresso. And our first words were similar to “My Goodness”. Rimming the glass with caramel and a dusting of salted almonds compliments with dark chocolate and sweetness of the pomegranate. Paired with Fifth Course: Dark Guittard Chocolate Pomegranate Pot De Crème
