This is a nice “tropical” cocktail with lots of rum flavor – I’m gonna share two recipes, first up is the one I made this evening:
TRADER VIC’S BARTENDER’S GUIDE ¾ cl lemon juice ¾ cl falernum (I used home made) ¾ cl cointreau 2¼ cl light Puerto Rican rum (I used El Dorado) 5¼ cl dark Jamaican rum (I used Myers’s) Shake with ice cubes. Pour into a 10-ounce glass.
The second one, which I’ve made a couple of times before, is from Beachbum Berry’s GROG LOG and is credited to Don the Beachcomber, circa 1941:
1½ cl lime juice
1½ cl falernum
1½ cl cointreau
1 dash Angostura bitters
1/8 teaspoon Pernod
2¼ cl light Puerto Rican rum
4½ cl dark Jamaican rum
Blend with 1 cup crushed ice for 5 seconds, then pour into double old-fashioned glass. Add more crushed ice to fill. Garnish with a wooden oyster fork with maraschino cherry on prongs.
The latter one is a bit easier on the booze, and also includes Don the Beachcomber’s signature Pernod trick. I really can’t decide which version I prefer…
