Citizen Cane

Brian Maxwell of The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. brings us a cocktail inspired by the cinema classic:

"In the 1941 film Citizen Kane, Orson Welles wrote, directed, produced, and starred as Charles Foster Kane, a character based loosely on real-life newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst. Our protagonist begins a life of social service, but eventually crumbles under his own pursuit of power. I like to think perhaps he would have benefited from a trip to the Caribbean for some rum rhapsodies. Imagine: a stressed out newspaper mogul sipping rum on the beach in Jamaica - Extra, extra! Read all about it!"
