He loved it so much that he always had a double serving, which earned the cocktail the moniker Papa Doble, or Double for Daddy.
Pour the rum, liqueur, juices, and syrup into a mixing glass. Add large cold ice cubes and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the lime-cherry “flag” (a citrus wheel skewered with a brandied cherry).
