Chaotic Neutral

Lauren Corriveau, Nitecap | New York

In a moral alignment chart, chaotic neutral represents people who feel free from both societal restraints and one’s own ethical imperatives. In Lauren Corriveau’s cocktail, a Daiquiri riff named after this moral alignment, Owney’s rum and St. George raspberry brandy meet alongside a mixture of lime and red pepper juices.

  • 1 1/2 ounces rum, preferably Owney's
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Contratto bitter
  • 1/2 ounce red pepper juice
  • 1/2 ounce cane syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon St. George raspberry brandy

Garnish: smoked salt rim, lime wheel

  1. Rim a double rocks glass with smoked salt and set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing tin and shake with ice.
  3. Strain into the glass over a large ice cube.
