This is basically a rum old fashioned. I muddled together a Cara Cara orange wheel and fresh tarragon with a sugar cube. Then, I threw in some angostura and orange bitters. Sipping this reminds me of being in the French Quarter of New Orleans while listening to classic jazz music by a street performer. I like how this cocktail is bitter and yet floral. Then that tarragon hits you right on the nose with the fresh scent of liquorish. This drink pairs well with any type of white fish. I would especially enjoy this drink with a golden brown halibut covered in a buttery white sauce.
2 oz dark rum
