The XYZ was the name first given to the Rum Sidecar when it appeared in the Savoy Cocktail Book published in London in 1930. While the original recipe called for white rum, many variants have introduced a dark rum over the years. The introduction of bitters in our variant creates an herbal and slightly spicy flavor profile you're sure to enjoy.
