1⁄8 t Pastis, Pernod

Feel free to garnish extravagantly with fruit and an umbrella. A very powerful drink that doesn't taste strong.

  • Should try this again with lower proof rum. Way too strong for me though. — ★★
  • Grand Daddy of the Tiki Drinks. Memorize this recipe. Don't add too much Cinnamon syrup or else you'll create a lazy Steve Crane Jet Pilot flavor....which is still an awesome flavor. — ★★★★★
  • Powerful, all right, but tasty — ★★★★★
  • One of the all-time Tiki classics, but recipe serves two in terms of alcohol. — ★★★★

I tried this with Smith & Cross for the Jamaican rum. Bad idea. The sour/leather taste of that rum pushes everything else aside, even bullies like the Lemon Hart, and the high proof makes a strong cocktail downright deadly. Delicious and dangerous with a mellower Jamaican rum, though.
