1 oz Rhum Barbancourt 8 Year
1 oz Pimm's No. 1
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice
Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass containing 2 oz ginger beer. Top with crushed ice, add a straw, and garnish with a lime twist.

The drink I sent out took a more Tiki direction with Haitian rhum for the Bourbon, passion fruit syrup for the elderflower liqueur, and lime for lemon. The general structure with the Pimm's and ginger beer held steady. For a name, I stuck with the Duran Duran theme and took note of the Haitian aspect and dubbed this one Voodoo Echo after one of the band's lesser known tracks.
