Corn ‘N’ Oil

MATTHEW KELLY / SUPERCALL

The exact history of this classic cocktail is murky—kind of like the blackstrap rum used to make it—but we do know that it originated somewhere in Barbados. The inspiration for the distinctly non-tropical name comes from its contrasting colors—the bright, pale mix of falernum and lime juice, and the dark, oil-like blackstrap rum. It’s similar to a Dark and Stormy, but tropical falernum takes the place of spicy ginger for a smooth, refreshing cocktail that’ll transport you to an island far, far away.
