Description
Jamaican Rum, Ramazzotti, Tangelo - check the initials

12ozTangelo liqueur (Or Curaçao)
1dsBitters, Bittermens 'Elemakule Tiki
1sliLemon zest (Thin)
Instructions
Stir liquid ingredients with ice; pour into Old Fashioned glass with big cubes. Express and drop lemon in to garnish.
Notes
The tangelo liqueur is a local brand (Schapp Dragon Distillery). Curaçao or other citrus liqueurs (eg mandarin) work as a sub, but then the initials won't spell JRRT.
History
Inspired by a preview of The Desolation of Smaug. The drink could be Hobbit-forming.

Edited to change the quantities but not the proportions. The originally-stated ones gave a very small drink. Which is a pity.

Clarified the Tangelo liqueur -- it is made in Golden Bay by Schnapp Dragon Distillery.

My interest in the recipe is dwarfed by my desolation at your pun.

Puns are the key to good elf.
