The Haiti Cocktail at Liberty: What Is It?

Here’s what you are drinking when you order a "Haiti."

January 22, 2010

I was wondering what was in the Haiti, that drink at Liberty that owner Andrew Friedman created to benefit relief efforts in Haiti—100 percent of income generated from the cocktail is donated to Mercy Corps or the Clinton Foundation. It costs $6.

Here’s the deal. It’s:

2oz Barbancourt 8yr Rum—from Haiti
.5oz Cynar (an artichoke-flavored Italian liqueur)
.25oz Cointreau
.5oz fresh lime juice
a lime twist
simple syrup to taste
