Latitude 29

2 oz
A high proof, usually 151, (>57.5 ABV) unaged rum. Most producers are based in Jamaica, such as Wray & Nephew (W&N). This rum is usually reserved for mixed drinks and is a key ingredient in many classic cocktails.
1.5 tsp
Granulated sugar is a sucrose formed with glucose and fructose join by covalent bonding. Sugar is soluble in water, increasing the surface area (smaller grain size) or heating the water, dissolves sugar faster. Some cocktails use sugar directly but more use it indirectly in syrups/liqueurs.
0.5 tsp
A so-called 'raw' cane sugar that was never refined into white sugar. The sugar molasses has been removed by gravitational separating in a centrifuge. It can be made into a simple syrup by a 1:1 sugar:water ratio by mass.
1 oz
The second most common juice used in cocktails. This citrus juice is about 6% acid; 4% from citric and 2% from malic, with small amounts of succinic acid (this is what gives it a little bloody taste). Lime juice should be used the day it is squeezed, some like it freshly squeezed and others like it a few hours old.
1 wheel
Small, round, green citrus fruits. Commonly used in many cocktails for its rind or its acidic taste (6% acid total; 4% citric, 2% malic, some succinic acid).

In a shaker, dissolve sugars into lime juice (see note). Add rum and ice (2 large cubes cracked with a bar spoon). Shake quickly and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with lime wheel.

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry meticulously devised this recipe for his New Orleans establishment Latitude 29. The idea is to reduce the amount of water in the ingredients (hence the sugar). Berry used a 5:1 blend of white sugar to turbinado (or Demerara) sugar.
