Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 ½ ounces light rum
  • 1 ½ ounces dark rum or gold rum
  • 1 ounce overproof rum
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • ½ teaspoon Pernod
  • ½ ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • ½ ounce Falernum
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon simple syrup
  • Dash of grapefruit juice
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • Dash of Yellow Chartreuse swirled in the tiki glass then discarded
  • Garnish

Instructions
 

  • 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 

Notes

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.
