water wings

1 1/2 oz Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum
1/2 oz Smith & Cross Rum
2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a Highball glass filled with ice. Add a straw.
The libation I requested from bartender Sabrina Kershaw at the Franklin Café was the Water Wings. The idea of a Tiki drink seemed perfect for the warm summer evening, and the medley of ingredients seemed like it could do no wrong. Once mixed, the Water Wings floated a pineapple aroma by the nose. The sip was rather fruity from the pineapple and Curaçao, and the swallow began with the richly flavored rums and spice. Finally, the pineapple returned on the finish along with the falernum's clove notes.
