wicked wahine

1 1/2 oz Spiced Rum (Kraken)
1/4 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Lime Juice
1/4 oz Passion Fruit Syrup (BG Reynolds)
1/4 oz Grenadine
1 dash Peychaud's Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orchid or another edible flower.
Two Mondays ago, we began the evening with a Tiki drink from Imbibe Magazine. The libation called the Wicked Wahine was created by Brice Ginardi, Okolemaluna Tiki Lounge in Hawaii and reminded me of a little of a classic Hurricane. Once mixed, the dark rum notes paired with the passion fruit ones on the nose. The caramel on the sip contrasted the bright, sweet, but vague fruity note from the juices and syrups. Finally, the molassy rum continued on into the swallow along with spice notes especially clove.
