Cherry Rum

Cream-based drinks are usually sweet. I just couldn't get over the non-sweetness of this one.

It's a very dry drink, but I kept expecting it to be sweet or smooth or at least drinkable. But it was pretty awful.

1.25 oz light rum (Bacardi Silver)
1.5 tsp Cherry-flavored brancy (Hiram Walker Kirschwasser)
1 Tbsp cream

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. No garnish is called for, but since it was called Cherry Rum I added a cherry. Bad idea, since it made the drink taste even more dry and bitter in comparison. Perhaps this drink is just beyond my palate.
