trader vic's grog

2 oz Dark Jamaican Rum (1 oz each Coruba and Smith & Cross)
1 oz Passion Fruit Syrup (BG Reynolds)
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Lemon Juice
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with crushed ice and pour into a tulip glass. Garnish with mint sprigs.
After getting home from Yacht Rock Sunday, I decided to pamper myself with a drink from Beachbum Berry's Remixed. The one that called out to me was a Grog created at Trader Vic's that reminded me a little of Hurricane gussied up with pineapple juice and bitters. Once prepared, Trader Vic's Grog gave forth a bounty of mint aromas. Lemon, caramel from the rums, and passion fruit on the sip gave way to dark funky Jamaican rums and pineapple on the swallow. Definitely more complex than the classic Hurricane, but equally as refreshing.
