jungle madness

1 1/2 oz Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
3 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Coffee Liqueur
1/4 oz Creme de Cacao
1/4 oz Green Chartreuse
2 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a Tiki mug filled with crushed ice. Garnish with mint and freshly grated nutmeg, and add a straw.

After a visit to Park, I made my way over to the Citizen Public House. There, bartender Jay Cool was serving up one of his creations for Tiki Tuesday called Jungle Madness. Jay clarified that the madness is "what happens after Jungle Fever." The rum, pineapple, and coffee liqueur combination reminded me of the Mr. Bali Hai, while the rum, pineapple, Chartreuse, and cacao was reminiscent of the Pago Pago -- but here, all fused into one drink sans citrus.
Jungle Madness began the disease with a mint and nutmeg aroma. A creamy-thick mouthfeel on the sip gave way to a flavor explosion on the swallow of the spiced rum, coffee, chocolate, and herbal notes.
