Distiller’s Pick-Me-Up

Jelani Johnson, Gage & Tollner | Brooklyn, New York

Fever-Tree Distillers Cola

Bartender Jelani Johnson, a former rum distiller himself, looked to the early mornings of his distilling days as inspiration for this highball, which uses as a base premium BACARDÍ Añejo Cuatro Rum. Inspired by what he knowingly calls “a distiller’s morning coffee,” he builds upon the rich backbone of molasses and baking spice present in Fever-Tree Distillers Cola to offer a tropical twist on the classic Rum & Cola.
