The Moon Over Pontchartrain cocktail next to a leather-bound flask

Moon Over Pontchartrain

By Sierra Kirk, bar manager, Hale Pele, Portland, OR; adapted from Flask: 41 Portable Cocktails to Drink Anywhere, by Sarah Baird (Chronicle Books, 2019)

Named for the sprawling lake that slices the city of New Orleans off from the rest of the continental U.S., this is a particularly decadent flask cocktail. Caramel richness from dark rum meets the juicy cherry notes of Cocchi Vermouth di Torino, a wine-based aperitif. It’s nice poured over ice, but it also drinks well at room temperature, especially if you need a little warmth after the sun sets.


1¾ ounce aged rum
1¾ ounce Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
1¾ ounce Cynar
½ teaspoon Angostura bitters


In mixing glass, combine all ingredients. Stir until mixed, and funnel into flask.
