3/4 oz Aperol
1 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Orange Juice (Cara Cara)
1 oz BG Reynold's Don's Mix (*)
3/4 oz Orgeat
3 dash Angostura Bitters
Shake with ice, strain into a hollowed pineapple shell (Tiki mug), and fill with crushed ice. Float a boat made out of a lime shell, cinnamon stick mast, and 1/2 star anise sail (lemon peel sail); pour 1 oz Wray & Nephew Overproof White Rum (Rum Fire) into the boat, and light on fire.
(*) Or use two parts grapefruit juice (2/3 oz) to one part cinnamon syrup (1/3 oz).
Two Wednesdays ago, I found a recipe posted by TikiWahine on the BarNotes app for an interesting Tiki drink called the Abandon Ship! The recipe was crafted by Felix Fernandez at Tiki Kon's 2014 Iron Tiki Tender event, and it seemed like an intriguing set of fruit flavors matched by spice. And the concept of a flaming ship garnish did not hurt. I had previously done a flaming pirate ship using a citrus shell, peels, and, toothpicks, but the idea of smouldering spices seemed intriguing. Unfortunately, I could not locate the star anise jar at home, so I opted for a lemon peel sail here.
