Hell yes. I wish it was warm enough here to truly appreciate such drinks


Is it below the freezing point of ethanol?  Finishing up my mai tai at the moment.  My complaint with the jet pilot is that it is similar to and about as much trouble as a zombie and the zombie is much better.  Your mileage may vary.

From this weekend's Rum Barrel Challenge, the Bum Barrel (adapted from Jeff Berry) with Smith & Cross Jamaican rum, Plantation Barbados 5 years, lime, white grapefruit, orange, passion fruit syrup, honey syrup, Angostura bitters. I reduced the amount of orange juice and passion fruit syrup a bit and skipped the soda water that the original recipe called for.

Or, you could try the eponymous cocktail for his new spot, Lost Lake:

2 oz Appleton V/X
3/4 oz Passion Fruit Syrup (B.G. Reynolds’)
3/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz pineapple juice
1/4 oz Maraschino
1/4 oz Campari
Shake with ice, strain over crushed ice.



Made a batch of these last night. So delicious. I think Campari is my favorite tiki secret weapon. (Looking at you, Jungle Bird--which also pairs it with pineapple juice.) I love the grassy, chocolatey funk that the Maraschino brings here too. Trying to use up a bottle of B.G. Reynolds' passion fruit syrup before it goes off so there may be many more Lost Lakes in my immediate future.
