pizarro's voyage

1 1/2 oz La Diablada Pisco
1/2 oz Plantation 5 Year Barbados Rum
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Grenadine
1/4 oz Vanilla Syrup

Shake with ice and strain into a Highball glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a lime slice and cherry, and add a straw.

For my second drink at Eastern Standard, I asked bartender Seth Freidus for one of his creations, Pizarro's Voyage. The recipe was his take on the classic Pisco Punch; the first variance was splitting the pisco spirit base with some aged rum and the second was swapping the simple (or gomme) syrup for pomegranate and vanilla syrups. Moreover, for a pisco, he opted for Macchu Pisco's La Diablada which he found to be very light and floral.
The Pizarro's Voyage's aroma began with lime and cherry notes from the garnish, but later pineapple became more apparent. A lime and pomegranate sip led into a pisco and rum swallow and a pineapple and vanilla finish.
