3/4 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum
3/4 oz Aged Rum (Seleta Cachaça Gold)
1/2 oz Ginger Liqueur (King's)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Falernum (BG Reynolds)

Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice.
Two Saturdays ago, I turned to the Tiki Drinks: Tropical Cocktails for the Modern Bar book where I had spotted the Outrigger; the drink called out to me for it seemed like an interesting ginger and clove variation on a Daiquiri. In the glass, it offered a mint bouquet to the nose. Next, lemon and dark molasses notes on the sip led into dark caramel, grassy funk, ginger, and clove on the swallow.
