The Larchmont

The Larchmont

Perhaps the most appropriate for the warmer evenings we’re all anticipating, the Larchmont is an Embury creation and first appeared in his “The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.” It’s perfect for a night on the Sound. We like this version by Paul Clarke from Imbibe magazine. Serves 2.


  • 3 ounces White Jamaican Rum
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 2 teaspoons simple syrup


  1. Gather all ingredients over cracked ice in a shaker and stir. Serve in a chilled coupe, garnish with an orange peel and serve.
