The Last Rasta

Smoke, Sweet, Jamaican, Green, Herb
34 oz Mezcal, Del Maguey Vida
34 oz Falernum, Velvet Falernum
34 oz Jamaican rum, Appleton 12
34 oz Lime juice
34 oz Green Chartreuse
1 twst Lime peel
Instructions
Shake, Strain, Up, Twist. Use a fun glass and listen to Horace Andy while preparing.
Notes
My variations have included subbing the falernum with allspice dram but it was too sweet. Also, it just doesn't work without the lime, but feel free to try other rums... The Appleton was a later addition; it adds depth and funk, but any anejo rum should work.
History
This started as a Jamaican inspired version of "The Last Word" but no matter how hard I tried I couldn't strip it down to 4 equal parts. I guess that Jah provides the Rastaman with that extra ingredient...
