wing nang

1 oz Old Monk Rum
1 oz Palo Viejo White Rum
3/4 oz Maurin Quina
1 1/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Cinnamon Syrup
4 dash Bittermens Tiki Bitters

Shake with ice and pour unstrained into a rocks glass. Add straws.
Two Sundays ago, we stopped into the Independent during one of the their John Funke music nights. For a drink, I asked the bartender for the Wing Nang which seemed intriguing for it was a Tiki-like drink containing Maurin Quina. The Wing Nang's aroma offered grapefruit and cinnamon notes. The grapefruit continued on into the sip along with the Maurin's cherry, and the swallow began with rum and cinnamon notes. The swallow ended with a lingering almond flavor from the Maurin that worked incredibly well with the Tiki feel.
