2 oz Column Still Aged Rum (Flor de Caña Añejo Oro)
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1 oz Coconut Cream (Goya)
1 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)
1 oz Seltzer

Combine in a drink mixer tin with 12 oz crushed ice, flash blend, and pour into a Tiki mug or double old fashioned glass (shake all but the seltzer with crushed ice, pour into a Mai Tai glass with the seltzer, and top with crushed ice).

After getting home from my New Year's Eve bar shift, it was well after midnight, so that meant that it was now January -- the beginning of the third annual Instagram Tiki the Snow Away event! To kick things off, I reached for The Smuggler's Cove book and found the perfect drink to utilize my new Bartender Secret Santa Gift of a pair of Rumba's Mai Tai glasses. That recipe was the Falinum which Martin Cate created for his friend Falin Minoru who is a Tiki mug artist and proprietor of Tiki Kaimuku Fine Boozing Vessels.
The Falinum floated up to the nose with a lemon and coconut bouquet. Next, a creamy lemon sip entered into a rum, coconut, ginger, and clove swallow.
