The question came up because he saw Santa Cruz Rum in some old Civil War era cocktails.
Below are a couple of those cocktails from that era.
- 3 or 4 Dashes Simple Syrup
- 2 or 3 Dashes Maraschino Liqueur or Curacao
- The Juice of 1/2 Small Lemon or Lime
- 1 Wineglass Santa Cruz Rum
- 1/2 Lime or Lemon, squeeze out the juice, and put rind and juice in the shaker
- 2 Tsp. Raspberry Syrup
- 1 wine-glass Santa Cruz Rum
- 1/2 Tsp. Curaçao
