The Hotel Nacional is one of my all-time favorite rum cocktails! It's easy enough to make and pretty much everyone I've served it to liked it a lot. It is a classic cocktail and an excellent drink to pull out when you want to treat your guests with something easy drinking and tropical.
2 oz (60ml) Aged rum. I used Rhum J.M Gold
1/4 oz (7.5ml) Giffard Apricot
1 oz (30ml) Pineapple juice
1/2 oz (15ml) Lime juice
1/2 oz (15ml) Simple syrup
Shake well and double strain into coupe or martini glass. Garnish with lime wheel or pineapple of some sort. Or nothing, like me!
