locked up abroad

3/4 oz Batavia Arrack (*)
1/2 oz Giffard Lychee Liqueur (**)
1/2 oz Orgeat
1/2 oz Velvet Falernum
1 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Bittermens Tiki Bitters

Build in a Collins glass, fill with crushed ice, and swizzle to mix and chill. Garnish with 2-3 dash Peychaud's Bitters and add a straw.
(*) I recommend doubling this amount.
(**) If unavailable, sub a lychee syrup.
The drink that Andrea requested at the Grange in Providence was the Locked Up Abroad which was one of their Tiki offerings. Once prepared, the Swizzle offered an anise aroma from the Peychaud's Bitters garnish. Lime and lychee notes on the sip gave way to lime, clove, and almond flavors. The Batavia Arrack was surprisingly subtle here; perhaps doubling the amount would make it more prominent in the mix as well as help to take the sweetness of the drink down a notch.
