When it’s the shortest day of the year, and you live in a cold climate (as your humble editors do), what are you and your peeps to do?
That’s right, it’s time for us snowbirds to migrate, so today’s peep-themed drink special is inspired by the bikers of Daytona Beach, the college parties of Fort Lauderdale, and the Vices of Miami!
Supposedly invented at some crazy Florida Tiki Bar in the 50s, this is one of those sickly-sweet drinks with no particular taste that gets mixed with all the excess flavored liqueurs behind the bar that nobody ever orders. (What, you were expecting something elegant or ‘refined’, on a website like this?)
Here’s our favorite interpretation:
- Two cups ice
- 1 oz light rum
- 1 oz dark rum or aged rum
- 1 oz Bacardi 151º to float on top
- 1 oz pineapple juice
- 1 oz orange juice
- 1 oz blackberry liqueur
- 1 oz banana liqueur
- Splash of grenadine
- Slice of citrus
Enjoy responsibly, and remember “No means No”.
