elusive dreams

1 oz Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum
1 oz Blended Unaged Rum (Privateer Tres Aromatique (unblended))
1 oz Pineapple Juice
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Cinnamon Syrup
1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil

Shake with ice, strain into a coupe, and garnish with a pineapple wedge (omit) and an orchid (honeysuckles).
Two Mondays ago, I was in the mood for something tropical, so I reached for Chloe Frechette's Easy Tiki book. There, I was lured in by Demi Natoli's Elusive Dreams that she created at Nashville's Patterson House as her spin on the Hotel Nacional Special. In the glass, the Elusive Dreams conjured up cinnamon, banana, and pineapple notes to the nose. Next, lime and pineapple mingled on the sip, and the swallow showcased rum, pineapple, banana, and cinnamon flavors to create an apple pie-like feel.
