Rum Sour with Fève

This post was originally posted on Shaker and Spoon.

This is my second experiment with the “magic bean.” This time, I infused one in 4 ounces of Smith & Cross Rum for 24 hours. My rum is now with this exotic aroma! Somehow it doesn’t overpower the S&C, but rather the rum is now coated with the extra dimension of the flavor.

It is one of the most unique sour drinks, I am pretty happy with the result.
