The 3/4 oz of pineapple

The 3/4 oz of pineapple version is better than the 3/4 oz lemon version. More pineapple develops the musky aroma that accents the Bananas Foster/estery rum nicely, and gives the palate a sweet and sour thing.

Really good, and worth the

Really good, and worth the effort of making the pineapple syrup. The rum shines, the pineapple complements from the background without taking over, and the cynar adds just enough bitterness. I love my Smith and Cross, and this cocktail is worthy:)

I made this by muddling

I made this by muddling pineapple chunks in Petite Canne cane syrup and letting it rest for a bit before shaking it, chunks and all, with the rest of the drink and straining. Very aromatic. The nose is a melange of overripe fruit esters from the rum, honey and savory herbs from the Cynar, and musky funky sweetness from the pineapple. These three ingredients draw a lot of great scents and flavors out of each other and are worth playing with further. The drink itself's delicious. I spent a few minutes just savoring the smells but downed the drink almost too quickly. Will make again.

I agree. I think the intense

I agree. I think the intense grassiness would do interesting things with the Cynar. I'll give it a shot if I ever pick up La Favorite for my home bar.

I enjoyed this, but I did

I enjoyed this, but I did find that the pineapple gets a little lost (even when raising it to 1oz) and instead tastes a bit like honey syrup. Hence the name?

Good drink overall!

I like Hurricane with lemon

I like Hurricane with lemon juice too. Zombie Island Punch has a very cool name, but actually the ingredients are similar and the taste isn't that zombie-like.
