This classic tiki cocktail packs a strong, but delicious, punch!
1-1/2 ounces light rum
1-1/2 ounces dark rum or gold rum
1 ounce overproof rum
1 teaspoon grenadine
1/2 teaspoon Pernod
1/2 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce Falernum
1/2 cinnamon simple syrup
Dash of grapefruit juice
Dash of Angostura bitters
Dash of Yellow Chartreuse swirled in the tiki glass, then discarded
- Place a small scoop of ice cubes in your blender
- Pour in the liquid ingredients and pulse a few times in the blender -- just enough to mix it up and crush the ice a little
- Pour into a tiki glass (add a little more ice if you prefer)
- Add the garnish of grapefruit wedge, bar cherry, lime slice and mint
Supposedly Donn Beach added something he called Donn's Mix. I'm not entirely sure what that is, but a bartender friend of mine told me it is a simple syrup made with cinnamon sticks and a dash or two of grapefruit juice mixed in.
You don't have to blend this drink, it is perfectly fine to use a cocktail shaker instead.
