Cocktail: Cartagena Buck

This was one of two cocktails I made up for last New Year's Eve and the better of the two. It's like a dark n' stormy dressed up with the citrus-vanilla flavor of Licor 43.

Combine rum, licor 43, lemon juice and bitter in a shaker with ice; shake until cold. Divide between two rocks glasses filled halfway with ice. Top each drink with about 3 oz. ginger beer.
