3⁄4 oz Jamaican rum (Funky white overproof such as Wray & Nephew, Rum Fire, etc.)
3⁄4 oz Cardamaro
3⁄4 oz Pineapple syrup
3⁄4 oz Lime juice
1 ds Absinthe (I used 20 drops)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe.


After discovering tropical fruit notes in Cardamaro, I decided to do a Corpse Reviver #2 riff. The pineapple notes that I was able to pull out of Cardamaro when I combined it with lemon juice and gin led me to use pineapple syrup as the other sweetener. Given the low to no proof nature of the rest of the ingredients, I figured that an overproof spirit like a funky white Jamaican rum would be necessary. Lastly, lime juice and a dash of absinthe rounded out this combination. For a name, I went with Moko Jumbie which means "healer" + "spirit/ghost" that often appear during Carnival as a masked being on stilts.
