1 oz Gold Puerto Rican Rum (DonQ Gold)
1 oz Grenadine
1 oz Lime Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a skull mug filled with crushed ice. Here, a Tiki mug garnished with mint and nasturtiums.
Once you get on the Tiki kick, it is hard to shake. With so much garnish available from mint to flowers that are still open and blooming at the cocktail hour, it is all too alluring. To assist that, there was another Instagram Tiki challenge with that week's drink being the Shrunken Skull. Since the recipe is essentially a two rum Jack Rose, I probably would not have made this one without some prodding such as this. In Remixed, Beachbum Berry did not give much history other than attributing it to midcentury, cannibal-themed origins. Others have traced it to mid-1950's Mai Kai menus.
