So the #tikithesnowaway instagram campaign came to an end last yesterday, but I’m gonna get one last post in. As a casual Tiki drinker, I really learned a lot this month about blending rums, outlandish garnishes, and sweet old-school mugs, but it’s time to simplify things as we bid this campaign farewell.
.5 oz White Rum [Smoky Quartz Distillery]
.5 oz Aged Rum [Diplomatico Reserve]
1 oz Rhum Agricole [Clement V.S.O.P]
1 oz Dark rum [Grand Ten Distilling]
.75 oz Besamim [Sukkah Hill Spirits]
.75 oz Pineapple Juice
.25 oz Lemon juice
.25 oz grenadine
Shake ingredients with ice. Strain into a tiki mug filled with crushed ice, then top with more crushed ice. Garnish with dehydrated lemon wheel and pineapple chunk, and other tiki paraphernalia
Normally, when you think of January, you think of playoff football, winter sports, and hearty stews. Cocktails tend to be more spirit forward sippers, best suited for pensively gazing into fires. Well, my insta-pals @ntitz and @homebargirl are out to change all that with their #tikithesnowaway campaign.
