3/4 oz Fernet Branca
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Mint Syrup (*)
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass with ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
(*) Recipe provided was 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water, 1 cup mint, 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, let simmer 30 minutes, and strain. I did a scaled down version (1 cup:1/2 oz) in a coffee mug in my microwave.
At the Daiquiri Time Out event at Tales of the Cocktail, I got a Daiquiri variation at the Leblon Cachaça booth and picked up a copy of their The Art of Cachaça recipe book. Two Mondays ago, I reached for it to make the night's libation and found Dustin Olson's drink, the Pencil Thin Mustache, from Cannibale in Calgary and Forrest Point in Brooklyn. At first, I figured that it was a direct tribute to John Waters and all that rock out this look, but it is probably named after the Jimmy Buffett song that honors this style.
