There are many theories about the meaning of the name. Some say it is the ultimate cocktail, meaning "no more" because of the last letter, others say it means "no more", and still others say it means "this is it for tonight". The sourness of the lemon and the sweetness of the curacao combine with the rum to create a gentle drink with a clean sweetness and a hint of bitterness. If the base is changed from rum to brandy, it becomes a sidecar; if the base is changed to gin, it becomes a white lady; if the base is vodka, it becomes a balalaika; if the base is tequila, it becomes a margarita. If you change the ratio of the ingredients, it becomes Miami.
